how to compare non-sequential revisions using diff in the gui

Asked by massmanjr on 2010-02-03

I'm new to Bazaar, so I apologize if I'm overlooking some easy functionality already built into the GUI interface. I have a file, which has multiple revisions (e.g. revisions 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). The GUI only appears to like to compare to the "previous" version. For instance, if I do a diff on version 5, it compares it to version 4. How do I easily compare version 5 to an earlier (not the prior) version number in the GUI interface--for instance, comparing version 5 to version 2, while ignoring versions 3 and 4?

The "Show DIfferences" action defaults to showing the difference between the working tree and the previous version. To specify which revisions to show a difference for, choose "All Commands", select the "qdiff" command and enter "-r 2..5" under the arguments. This should show the differences between the trees in those two revisions.

Can you help with this problem?
