Hi, there must be someone else that already have answered this problem. I really love DiffMerge, the only thing that drives me crazy is that sometimes I need to do a diff between files in OS X that are in SVN and the source files have permission 644, i.e. -rw-r--r--. If I use CMD + Shift + . I see the .svn folder in the dialog but I still can't select my source file.

What am I missing?

diffmerge.sh from the command line works fine, i.e. . diffmerge.sh ~/projects/myapp/src/config/properties/mypropertyfile ~/projects/myapp2/src/config/properties/mypropertyfile

Thanks,
Magnus

I'm not sure what could be causing that in the "Open Files..." dialog.
Files with 644 should be just fine.

Could it be that you're clicking on "Open Folders..." rather than "Open Files..." ?
When that dialog is up, the regular files are grayed.

Jeff, it's embarrassing to admit but you're right! I didn't for some reason realize I was selecting a folder.
