How to view all the changes in a PR at the same time (multiple files)?

I've googled all forms of "bitbucket pull request diff all files" that I could think of and I've checked the documentation.  All the docs seem to implicitly assume that changes are made mostly in just one file.

I'm used to GitLab, where a merge request's diff is ALL the changes from ALL the files, clearly separated, and you can scroll through them.

For a Pull Request that involves lots and lots of files, but only a very small change to each, it is much harder to see at a glance what has changed when you can only see one file's changes at a time in the "diff" tab of the PR.  I can hardly believe that clicking on each file one at a time is the only way to review the diff in BitBucket, but it certainly seems to be the case....

Am I missing something?  How can I see all the changes at once?

I'm using BitBucket Server 4.8.3.

(If this really IS the only way, is there a feature request open to change this?)

Hi Mike, at the moment there's no other way. There's a   feature request that looks a bit similar to what you're asking for, you can find it at BSERV-9109

If you'd like something more specific, you're welcome to submit your own at by clicking on the Create button.

Hope this helps!
