For joining sections in either input window select something in the lines from the sections to join. A member of the team makes some changes in an area of that file and sends kdift3 changes to the repository with the commit. Furthermore, in the directory, three new files have appeared: Remember that if you are doing a merge and you did not start the merge before the alignments, starting a merge at this point will reset your manual alignments.

At the same time, in your local copy, which is identical to version A of the remote repository, you make some changes on the same area of the same file. Each info line appears in a different color. Didn’t notice any change to the diff.

But what if we want it to match up lines starting with the letter “A” instead? KDiff3 will immediately recalculate the differences everytime you do this.

By clicking into this overview column the corresponding text will be shown.

Hence the necessity to distinguish “unsolved conflicts”. Repeat this for the second and if available third diff view. For these situations you can manually instruct KDiff3 to align certain lines.


Upon termination, the file is saved and the tool terminated. This can help when you always want to choose one source only. You will lose all of your merges. If you insist on using the menu, you can see the options for manual alignment in the screen shot below. The three input windows are assigned the letters “A”, “B” and “C”. For each conflict you may select the content of any of the three versions buttons A, B and C to be included in the resulting file, or directly write the correct text in this file.

Mark the text for which you want to improve the alignment with the mouse as you would for copy and paste in the first diff view and then choose “Add Manual Diff Alignment” in the “Diffview”-menu keyboard shortcut “Ctrl-Y”. When both other input files differ then the color used to express this is red by default “Conflict color” in the Settings. A conflict then has top priority over simple differences, which have priority over no change, so that no difference or conflict is lost here.

Where possible, it’s nice to have the merge program automatically resolve any conflicts that it can before forcing you to make any manual merge selections. Add new sections by first selecting text in the lines that belong together in either input window as for copying to the clipboard.

Advanced merging – manual alignment with KDIFF3

The following figure mnaual this situation. Would you like to make a comment or contribute an update to this page? Of course some of the previously matching lines in between might not match anymore. If we check the status of the file with the status command, we can see the conflict.

Comparing Files And Interpreting The Information In The Input Windows

This is easy to do in 2-way diff operations, but can raise some questions when doing a 3-way merge. The info lines of the input windows contain a letter “A”, “B” or “C”, the editable filename, a button for browsing, and the line number of the first visible line in the window. At the top of each text window is its “info line”.

Here is the first manual alignment. The command receives as arguments the name of the three files versions A, B and C and with the option -o we select the file where to store the result.

If you enable this, then, when one source is selected, KDiff3 will jump to and select the next unsolved conflict automatically.
