Comparing XML files in RAD

I'm using RAD 8.5.1 at work, and have a question about comparing XML files. Currently when I do a compare on XML, it shows the two versions side-by-side in a tree structure. I much prefer having it displayed as text rather than a tree. In the compare, I can go to "File > Compare as text", and it will switch it, but the next time I compare XML, it goes back to the tree structure. I've looked through the preferences and can't find an option for this under the "Window > Preferences > General > Compare/Patch". Anyone know if there's an option to have XML files always compare as text by default?
