Default "Compare as"

Postby KOHb » Tue Jun 02, 2020 4:33 pm

the files I compare a LOT use different extension (.pgm per say).
They are essentially text files.
When i compare them - the WinMerge compares them as XML and finds no differences.
Every time I have to compare those files (and with other extensions like .cod, etc. - but still plain text) - XML is default template.
So, every time I have to go to File->RecompareAs->Text to get to what I need.
And I'm comparing lots of files, so it's very annoying and counterproductive.

Is there a way to set default to use Text template instead of XML?

Or other way to avoid XML default comparing.
