  • Copy/Delete in 3-Way Folder Merge

    Hello,

    Is there anyway to copy left/right when in the folder merge view? If not I would like to request that feature be added in.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Thanks for the suggestion. No, the Folder Merge session does not allow editing of the inputs (Left, Right, and Center/Ancestor), and is designed to merge into the 4th Output location. Double clicking a text file can launch a child Text Merge session, which also functions this way (only the Output allows editing).

    A 3-way Folder Compare session type, where the 3 folders are equally weighted and editable, is something on our long-term wishlist (where our developers go for ideas for future features and enhancements), but not a project we'll be able to tackle short-term.

      Update: if you set the Output Merge To: field to "Left" or "Right" this exposes additional context commands in the right click menu that allow editing of that side directly (copying a selected file into the Output:Left, or deleting a file in Output:Left, for example). The non-output side is still write protected, but how does this work for you?
