    This is exciting Aaron!

    Can you give us a little guidance on how to get to it? I've installed the beta (build 17905) and it looks a little different. I can't find how to access the 3-way. The Help file shows some screen shots of it, and references two buttons (hide/detach center pane) but I haven't found those icons. I even tried modifying my tool bar to include them, but don't find them in the list. Right-clicked on everything, etc. Selected 3 files and hit compare...nothing.

    How do you get to the 3-way compare?


    Thx,

    The 3-way Folder Merge is designed to merge from 3 inputs into a 4th output. The center pane is the common ancestor of the left and right panes. The comparison can be configured in the Session Settings, and the Merge button then allows you to merge from the 3 inputs into: Left, Right, or Other (4th) location.

    It's not a full 3-way Compare, since the center pane does need to be a common ancestor of the left and right. It's a bit more specialized for specific scenarios, like this:

    In this case, Apple 1.0 would be the common ancestor, and Orange 1.0 and Apple 2.0 would be Left and Right. The output would be a 4th location, Orange 2.0.

    Thanks, Aaron. I've never used the Text Merge function before, so had to go find it.

    I normally only deal in whole files across directories, and was really hoping that I could compare three (or more) directories at once. I hope that is on your roadmap.

    I'll play with the Merge function. I'm sure it will be useful, too.

    I've been playing around with it this evening, can you point me to a thread where I can make a few suggestions or perhaps inquire if my requests are already being looked at... very excited to see the folder merge actually in action and it's exactly what I've been looking for as a final output in deltas; I have questions as to how to go about copying and synching from the left/center/right now though...

    Certainly, if you navigate to the top level of the forum, there are main BC2, BC3, and BC4 subforums (we're in BC3 now). Here's a direct link for BC4's: http://www.scootersoftware.com/vbull...splay.php?f=38

    You can also email us at support@scootersoftware.com if you wanted to include private screenshots, etc.
