You actually achieve a 3-way alignment as a series of two 2-way alignments.

The third source has been realigned with the other sources where possible. The vertical line separating the summary column and the text is interrupted if the input file had no lines there.

Manually Joining and Splitting Diff Sections. Click on the line to be aligned in the first source with your mouse. A left-mouse-button-click into any summary column will synchronise all windows to show the beginning of the same group of lines as explained in section “Setting The Current Group And Synchronising Merge And Diff View Position”. Mark the text for which you want to improve the alignment with the mouse as you would for copy and paste in the first diff view and then choose “Add Manual Diff Alignment” in the “Diffview”-menu keyboard shortcut “Ctrl-Y”.

The “A” on the first two sources are aligned on the same line. It cannot align with kdif3 “1” line in sources 1 and 2 because it would violate the manual alignment to line up all 3. A conflict then has top priority over simple differences, which have priority over no change, so that no difference or conflict is lost here.

For these situations you can manually instruct KDiff3 to align certain lines. The online documentation is rather sparse. The command receives as arguments the name of the three files versions A, B and C and with the option -o we select the file where to store the result.
