 Hi

 Those of you who are merging in TFS using beyond compare, and upgraded from Beyond Compare 2 to 3,
probably noticed that the merge view is different.

Beyond Compare mapping article instructs you to map TFS merge to BC using this arguments  line – for 3-way merge:
%1 %2 %3 %4 /title1=%6 /title2=%7 /title3=%8 /title4=%9

But if you wish to continue using 2-way merge using BC3, this article instructs you use the old arguments  line you’ve  used with  BC2:
%1 %2 /savetarget=%4 /title1=%6 /title2=%7

The problem is that this command line does not give us the classic 2-way merge  view (with 3rd window as result).
Try this: %1 %2 “” %4 /title1=%6 /title2=%7 /title3=”" /title4=%9
