Setup

  • OS X 10.8.2
  • Versions 1.1.11
  • Kaleidoscope 2.0.0

Problem

I am a registered user (DirectSales, not AppStore) of both Versions and Kaleidoscope (both from BlackPixel). The latest versions of both apps are installed on on my system.

I would like to configure Versions.app to use Kaleidoscope.app as its diff tool.

However, when I go to

Versions.app > Preferences > File Comparison

I see Kaleidoscope grayed out with a generic icon (see screencap below). Since both apps are from the same developer, I think I must be missing something obvious, or there may be a problem with my system.

So: How to select Kaleidoscope.app as the diff tool in Versions.app?

  • From the Kaleidoscope app go to Kaleidoscope menu > Integration...

command line tool ksdiff Install the ksdiff tool

  • Quit and relaunch Versions and Kaleidoscope should be selectable.

If that doesn't work, check with Black Pixel's amazing support team after being sure you have build 104 of Kaleidoscope 2.0
