how can i compare two branches. lets say my working dev-branch to master or master to origin/master.
i can do this with git command line but how can this be done with sourctree. is it possible to have this in also an external diff tool? filemerge can handle a "directory diff".
i sometimes want to have the external diff to view the complete file and not only the "differences"
Use control-click or command-click to select any two commits (so both are highlighted at the same time)
The window in the lower left shows you a list of all files that were different (added, deleted, or modified)
You can select a file from that list to see the specific changes in that file between the two selected commits.source_tree_diff.png
You can also configure a third party diff tool, but the built-in functionality has met my needs so I don't have any experience with that.
You can select 2 commits (cmd click) and compare in sourcetree. to compare 2 branches select the tip of the branches in log view , you can do the same for local and origin too.
But I usually use terminal since it is easier .
