I'm disappointed you feel that way.
    

Maybe I am speaking out of turn. It would almost certainly be Stefan doing
the hard work. I am just a TSVN user.

  
The need to edit
conflicts comes up about half the time, and in those
cases I end up feeling that I have wasted my time by
even trying to use TortoiseMerge for this purpose.
    

I agree that if you resolve some conflicts and right at the end find a bit
which you are unable to complete, it could be frustrating. TMerge only
supports resolve-all or resolve-nothing at present.

  
Weird.  In this earlier email you understood what I meant.  Not sure why you flamed me later on.  Maybe you forgot you understood.

  
You can also use 3rd party diff/merge tools if you don't like TMerge, and
the help file provides links to 5 different free/shareware ones (appendix A
3.6). I have not tried any of them myself, but one of them might do what you
want. Let us know what you find.

Thank you!  Yes, that's the answer.  I have found that the commercial product Perforce comes with a 3-way merge tool.  The diff and merge tool part are available for free.  Perforce lets you do theirs, yours, or edit the results.  So far no drawbacks at all, seems to do everything just how I like.  And it plugs in easily to svnup, the svn client I use.  (I had installed TortoiseSVN just to get TortoiseMerge to plug into svnup.  Now I can uninstall TortoiseSVN and it'll stop messing with my Windows Explorer.  Would be more versatile if TortoiseMerge was available as a stand-along application, but whatever.)

If you want to try out the Perforce diff and merge here's a link.  Download the "Core Perforce Windows Installer", and when the install lets you configure, just uncheck everything but the diff and merge tool.

Windows installer: http://www.perforce.com/downloads/perforce/r04.2/bin.ntx86/perforce.exe
