Figure 1. Create Patch Wizard - Options

Patch Section

Depth - (This option is applicable only for directories)
Current depth
The depth of recursing the folder for creating the patch is the same as the depth of that same folder in the working copy (available only when generating patches that contain changes from the working copy).
Recursive (infinity)
The patch is created on all the files and folders contained in the selected folder.
Immediate children (immediates)
The patch is created only on the child files and folders without recursing subfolders.
File children only (files)
The patch is created only on the child files.
This folder only (empty)
The patch is created only on the selected folder (no child file or folder is included in the patch).
Ignore content of added files
When selected, the patch file does not include the content of the added items. This option corresponds to the --no-diff-added option of the svn diff command.
Ignore content of delete files
When selected, the patch file does not include the content of the deleted items. This option corresponds to the --no-diff-deleted option of the svn diff command.
Treat copied files as newly added
When selected, copied items are treated as new, rather than comparing the items with their sources. This option corresponds to the --show-copies-as-adds option of the svn diff command.
Include files having a binary MIME type
When selected, the application is forced to compare items that are considered binary file types. This option corresponds to the --force option of the svn diff command.
Ignore properties
When selected, differences in the properties of items are ignored. This option corresponds to the --ignore-properties option of the svn diff command.
Properties only
When selected, only differences in the properties of the items are included in the patch file (file content is ignored). This option corresponds to the --properties-only option of the svn diff command.
Note: The Ignore properties and Properties only options are mutually exclusive.
Notice ancestry
If selected, the SVN common ancestry is taken into consideration when calculating the differences. This option corresponds to the --notice-ancestry option of the svn diff command.

Files Comparison Section

Ignore line endings
If selected, the differences in line endings are ignored when the patch is generated. This option corresponds to the --ignore-eol-style option of the svn diff command.
Ignore whitespaces
If selected, it allows you to specify how the whitespace changes should be handled. When selected, you can then choose between two options:
  • Ignore whitespace changes (--ignore-space-change) - Ignores changes in the amount of whitespaces or changes to their type (for example, when changing the indentation or changing tabs to spaces).
    Note: Whitespaces that are added or removed are still considered to be changes.
  • Ignore all whitespaces (--ignore-all-space) - Ignores all types of whitespace changes.

Output Section

Save as
The patch will be created and saved in the specified file.
Use Git extended diff format
When selected, the patch is generated using the Git format. This option corresponds to the --git option of the svn diff command.
