      Description

      Hello,

      I am using SourceTree for a project which contains large text files I've configured to be handled by LFS.

      I have enabled the settings git config diff.lfs.textconv cat to allow diffing from the Git Bash, which works.

      Also, using an external diff tool in SourceTree allows me to look at the changes in those large files.

      Unfortunately, the history diff preview panel shows the diffs between the file pointers rather than the file contents (as it would happen with git diff if diff.lfs.textconf were not set).

      It's inconvenient to have to switch to an external diff tool for each changed file.

      Am I missing a setting, or is full content diff going to be implemented at some point?
