    I have Beyond Compare 4 set up as my MERGE TOOL.  Works great!

    But under Local History

    Local History Compare

    the COMPARE buttons default back to the standard comparison tool.

    Is there any way to get this to use Beyond Compare?

    If not, could this be added as a feature request?

      Hi George,

      Thank you for your post.

      Unfortunately, we cannot modify it, because it is a standard feature of Visual Studio Shell.

      You are able to change the merge tool only. Also, could you please review the next doc file about this? External Tools

      Hopefully, it helps you.

      If you have any other questions or suggestions, please let us know - we'll be happy to hear them.

        Thanks Ihor. 

        I have seen the page you asked me to review.  I have Beyond Compare completely setup and have been using it in TWS for a couple years.  But it currently only is used in TWS when I am doing a pull from Salesforce.  Was hoping it could also be used in the other places there is a comparison of files being done (like on Pending Changes).

          Hello George.

          Thank you for your comments.

          I've added an appropriate ticket so that our team could consider what we can do for this.

          I'm not sure that we will have an ability to work on this request the nearest months, however, I'll keep you updated on our progress if we start to work on this.

          Take care and stay healthy,
