Using Beyond Compare in QGIT

You can configure these tools to do diffs using Beyond Compare (or some other favorite diff tool)

  • Open QGIT
    • Either – right-click on a folder in the repo and select “Git GUI Here”
    • Or – launch QGIT.exe and choose the repo folder
  • Go to Edit->Settings…->General tab->External diff tool. You cannot have spaces in the path, so you’ll need to enter it manually in a format like:
"C:\PROGRA~2\BEYOND~1\BC2.exe" //c:/Program Files(x86)/Beyond Compare/BC2.exe - Windows 7
"C:\PROGRA~1\BEYOND~1\BC2.exe" //c:/Program Files/Beyond Compare/BC2.exe - older Windows
