Setting KDiff file comparison tool for SourceTree

Source Tree by default uses its own File Comparison mechanism to compare difference between files and directories. Source Tree also provides built-in support to some of the tools like FileMerge, DiffMerge, Araxis Merge, KDiff3, we can install these tools and select one of these tools for file comparison.

To use KDiff, we should first download and install the KDiff3 tool from source forge

Once KDiff3 is installed, we can set it as the file comparison tool in Source tree as follows.

1. Open Source Tree
2. Go to Tools -> Options
3. Select the Diff Tab
4. Under External diff / Merge -> External Diff Tool select K3Diff, and click Ok

5. A dialog opens up asking for the installation path of the KDiff3 tool.
6. Select the installed KDiff3 executable file (C:\Program Files (x86)\KDiff3\kdiff3.exe)
7. Once this is done, kDiff is set as an additional comparison tool for Source Tree
