Error when trying to diff files when using hide extensions option

Answered

Hi,

I think I have found a bug with IntelliJ IDEA.

When using this option:

I receive an error when trying to diff a file from git history:

Then when I deselect the option and show file extensions in editor tabs the git diff tool works correctly.

Is this a bug or is there something I need to do to get this to work?

Thanks,
Dan

This is likely a bug.

Does it happen for all files, or only some of them? (ex: binary files, files without extension, files with some specific extension)

Could you please attach log files ? https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/207241085-Locating-IDE-log-files

Interestingly since the last update (run this morning) I'm so far unable to reproduce the bug in order to produce logs so this may not be an issue anymore.

I will post any logs if it happens again.

Thanks,

Dan
