Configure Merge Tool

Setup and configure a merge tool to update files. Merge tools make it easy to transfer configuration settings from a back-up file to the new configuration file.

Open the dialog with the menu Tools - Configure Merge Tool.

Merge Tool Configuration


Command Specify the executable of the merge tool. Use the browse button to select the executable or enter the path manually. Environment variables can be used as explained in Key Sequences. External applications should not add paths to the MRU list in the Select Field or Folders dialog.
Arguments Specify the arguments for the merge tool. You can use Key Sequences to pass arguments. Refer to the documentation of your merge tool for additional arguments and command line parameters.

The picture shows the setup for WinMerge. The argument:

  • $previous identifies the back-up file (extension *.NNNN).
  • $current identifies the new configuration file delivered with the Software Component.

The table provides a list of merge tools.
