Description _ gtzabari 2003-12-03 19:13:58 UTC
Diffing relative to the previous version is
something I do very often and since CVS | DIFF on
the most up-to-date version does nothing except
print out a warning we can potentially overload
its meaning.

An alternative is to explicitly add a shortcut to
diff against common targets like "one version
back" or "one day back" without going into

Easy. Assign a shortcut for the "Diff (CVS)" action in the options panel! Worksforme.
Comment 2 _ gtzabari 2013-01-30 15:47:55 UTC
I am advocating adding a shortcut to "diff relative to last version" as opposed to simply opening the general diff dialog.

To be honest, it doesn't matter as much to me 9 years later because I no longer use the built-in VCS engine. I *would* use it if the UI caught up with that of external tools like TortoiseHg and TortoiseSVN.
