RE: [TSVN] File diff - working copy against specific revision

Stefan,

Thanks, I'd obviously misinterpreted the manual.

Unfortunately, that method makes me use TortoiseMerge rather than my
preferred merge tool (WinMerge).

FWIW, it would be really handy to have "Compare with working copy" on the
context menu for a specific file (rather than the whole revision) in the Log
window.

Show the log on the parent folder, then that menu appears.
