Apple File Merge not supported by Collaborate as diff tool



How to Repro:
1. Open a Collab-enabled Project in Unity 2020.1+.
2. Open the Preferences menu, go to External Tools and make sure that Apple File Merge is selected as the Revision Control Diff/Merge Tool.
3. Create small change in SampleScene.unity and save.
4. Open the Collab Window by pressing the Collab button.
5. On the modified SampleScene asset, hover over it and choose to See Differences.

Expected: Apple File Merge should open and highlight the changes made in SampleScene.unity.
Actual: Apple File Merge doesn't open, in the Collab Window there is a red error that says "Sorry, something went wrong, please try again later."

    EDIT: documentation for setting up a custom Diff tool is ready here:

    Same here. I tried setting up VSCode as my diff tool but failed to find the needed params.

    Additionally, I can't use a 3rd party tool because there is no documentation on how to set up the command line args. I can't tell what tokens to use to represent the file names, and leaving the command line arguments blank passes nothing.
