Open older version of a file from source control
« on: July 14, 2009, 11:48:36 pm »
Hi.

At the moment when you get version control history for a file and open an older version, it opens the file in Diffziila I presume. I would like to be able to open these previous version in a buffer so that I can browse then and edit other files at the same time.

Cheers,

To expand on this. I just used the version control menu to doff the buffer against the most up to date version. I've got that diffs on the screen great. Now whilst keeping that on the screen I want to look at another buffer.

But I can't do anything in SE whilst DZ is open.
