How do I extract a historical snapshot of a file?

  1. Select the Differences View. (You can select the menu View -> Differences View)
  2. In the base and compare revision history pick the revision for which you want the file. (Actually only the compare revision is important, but there is less visual clutter if the base is the same.)
  3. In the file browser below you will see the state of all the files as of the chosen revision.
  4. Simply drag the files you are interested in to the finder to produce historical snapshots of these files as of the chosen revision. (Alternatively you can select the files you are interested in and activate the QuickLook preview.)
