Managing the merge direction.

+6 votes
I have (default) approval for a merge.  It involves profiles with different LNAB due to use of dit names.  I want the merge to go in a specific direction, but don't recall if I created the merge in that direction or not.  I don't want to hit the "Merge" button and find that it is hardwired in the wrong direction.  Please remind me if the merge process will give me the choice of direction when there are different LNAB.  Or if I can tell from the Pending Merge order, e.g. L and R profiles, which way it is now set to merge.

Thanks, Paul

Click the Merge button.  That will bring up the final merge screen (not yet completed).  The column on the right shows you what the final profile will look like.  If it shows the wrong LNAB, you can change it right on the merge screen.
