Create Patch from CVS History view?

If I view the CVS History for a single file, and I select two versions in that history list, I can click a button that brings up a "Visual Diff". Is there a way to get a patch file ?

I know about the "Create Patch" button in the Changes>Repository tab. But I want a patch between two arbitrary versions of a single file (not a patch between 'local' and an arbitrary repository version).

Hello Mike,

If I view the CVS History for a single file, and I select two versions
in that history list, I can click a button that brings up a "Visual
Diff". Is there a way to get a patch file ?

I know about the "Create Patch" button in the Changes>Repository tab.
But I want a patch between two arbitrary versions of a single file
(not a patch between 'local' and an arbitrary repository version).


The feature for creating a patch from two revisions selected in the History
view was implemented in IDEA 8.
