    When I clicked on the button to view diff the first time, a window popped up saying it had to install additional software which I let it do. After that completed however now clicking the button just does nothing.

    There are no errors in the console either.

    Hi @jwvanderbeck, could you open the Preferences window in your project and tell me what tool is listed under the Revision Control Diff/Merge dropdown?

    The following MacOS diff tools are supported for Collab: Apple File Merge, TkDiff, Beyond Compare 4, SourceGear DiffMerge.

    Do you have XCode installed? This tool is commonly installed with XCode and may need additional resources to function properly, which should be included after installing XCode.

    Not at present, but as I stated when I initially tried to use the merge, a popup came up saying it needed to install some xcode files which presumably installed the files neccesary. Since then clicking the button doesn't pop that up anymore but also doesn't do anything.

    Could you try restarting your machine to see if Apple File Merge is still refusing to open after installing those additional files?
