bug report: Backup History no longer diffs with current version
« on: September 01, 2021, 07:14:17 am »
Hello,
Steps to reproduce:
- open a file that has several versions on "Backup History" (Tools Windows)
- in "Backup History" double click an "old" version (more than 2 versions away from current version opened in buffer)
Expected:
Diff window opens with current version on the left, selected "old" version on the right
Seen:
Diff window opens with "old" version -1 on the left, selected "old" version on the right

Besides, any version N you click on upper list (while in Diff window) changes both sides to N and N-1.
You can never diff current version with an "old" one.

I need to address being able to do two non-sequential versions.  Just so you know, you can select your local file on the left instead of consecutive versions.

Thanks for your comment.
Point is that the direct positioning of local/version-n that used to be automatic is lost.
