Hi All,

I like the Eclipse feature Compare with -> Local History, but is there a
way to set a key binding for it? Under "Window > Preferences General >
Keys" I cannot see that action at all.

Thanks for any advice!

Remove the filter... so you can see uncategorized commands, and then
search for "Local History"

You'll have to look at the description of each one, to see which is the
correct one.

Thanks Paul - that worked nicely.

The short-cut didn't work.. until I realised I cannot activate it from the
Editor: I can only activate it from an explorer view like Navigator. Also,
there are two views that compare with local history, one that displays
results in the History view, another that displays results in a pop-up. In
the Preferences > General > Keys view, there is nothing to separate them.
Oh well, I don't mind - I set a keyboard command for each one. :)
