How to get old behavior when using git 'show diff'?


I just upgraded to Pycharm 2021.2 and found an annoying change:


In 'local changes', if I click 'show diff' on a file, it used to pop up a window with two split panels to show the diffs with a much large size, but now the diff window is shown in the same code editor as a tab, which is embedded, so making the window much smaller. Is there a way to get the old behavior back? I think this is a BAD change.


See the attached.

Hello Lingvisa

You can bring old behavior back by clicking on "Settings" gear icon -> "Show Diff in Separate Window"
