diff window not working in 14 versions


I have a plugin I have improved and the plugin creates a diff window where you can see diff files in 15 version.


when I activate it on 14 version the clinking on the files is not working and the diff is not being opened.


can any one give me a tip on where can I fix it and if it is even fixable?

Hi Eran,

At least you should check that the plugin is enabled and compatible with IDEA 14. Also it's worth to take a look at log files (Help | Show Log in <file_browser>)

The issue is likely caused by usage of the new diff api, that was introduced in 14.1.

You might want to take a look at samples here - https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/206751345-How-to-display-diff-manager-in-order-to-compare-two-strings?page=1#community_comment_206084665.
