I used Winmerge before Diffmerge.
I like Diffmerge a lot but..

Why isn't there a button "Apply from Right to Left"?

I've read something about it on the forum but I don't understand what the reason is.
(I use always Open File Diff).

Thanks for this great software!

DiffMerge only supports editing in the right panel (of a 2 panel diff window).
The left panel is read-only.

We did it this way because the typical use was to have a historical/reference
version on the left and the working/sandbox copy on the right and let you
bring changes into the working copy. An earlier version allowed editing on
both sides, but that caused a lot of confusion. But that is our most frequently
requested feature, so perhaps it wasn't that confusing....

If only there could be some way to allow users to view and even to modify the characteristics, or shall I say "preferences," of the application to permit the use of such a bug, whoops, I meant 'feature'.

I've added a note to the feature request to show the additional interest. Thank you for your feedback.
