I think it's most important for "Show differences" on a file in
the lower pane. And since the "Changed Files" dialog is used for
diffing dirs, it should be possible there, too.

Personally, I can accept multiple instances of TMerge or whatever
diff viewer is used if both content and properties are changed.

However, I would prefer working this way:

Double-Click: Diff content if content is changed, otherwise
diff properties (so if both are changed, diff content).

Context Menu: Offer seperate menu entries for diffing content
and properties.

When diffing properties: If multiple properties where changed,
let the user select which one to diff. This "changed Properties"
dialog could contain old value/new values colums for textual

Sounds like quite a lot of work to me, but that's the way I
would like it to work.

Kind regards
