How Do We Get The Old Compare Branches Back?

Answered

Since this new feature has arrived https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-207634 the compare with branches has been broken.

I am on develop and click master Compare with Current and it shows 0 commits even though lots have work has been done.

When I am comparing branches I don't want a tiny tool window to look at the diff, I want a large pop-up so I can clearly see everything.

Is there a switch to use the old view instead?

This is so irritatitng.

I remember now why I have been running 2018.3.1 for the last 2 years.

I was forced to upgrade by the company for security reasons and now I have a useless diff dialog again.

Why don't you just make the option to use the modal version like in the git commit dialog?
