Difference and Merge Tool Preferences
The Diff and Merge Tools pane in the Preferences Configuration dialog box contains default settings for the differencing and merging tools used by Windchill RV&S.
Note the following:
Your administrator may enforce server-side preferences making them unavailable to you. These server enforced preferences depend on the server you are connected to while viewing the preferences. If you are not connected or logged in to a server, the Windchill RV&S client displays the local defaults for all preferences.
To set your preferences accurately, log in to the server you want to work from before setting preferences. The Preferences dialog box displays the server you are currently connected to in the title bar.
Options that appear in bold are those that are set locally by you. You can reset to the default settings by clicking the Clear Local Settings button (available only on the applicable panels).
A blank check box () means the option is not enabled, a check mark () means the option is enabled, and a question mark () means you will be prompted to confirm or specify the option.
