Dear Jaap after trying unsuccessfully over the course of several hours yesterday I can report that it works now. I have restarted the computer and temporarily disabled and re-enabled the version control plugin. Whatever did the trick, the main thing is that the version history is now back now with diff via meld working.
Is there a god reason to choose a versioning back end other than git? I realize that it may be unnecessarily complicated for my relatively simple needs but like so many things in Zim the complexity is not exposed to you, plus I am not sure about the longevity of some other options (Fossil, bazaar) that Zim offers as alternatives. Why did it take me so long to find Zim? Such a wonderfully balanced tool, the simplicity of a text based workflow without the overhead, my sincere thanks for making it Christoph > On 01.03.2016, at 08:49, Jaap Karssenberg <jaap.karssenb...@gmail.com> wrote: > > Christophe, > > In principle it should just work if the version control plugin is enabled and > is able to find the git package.
