==> I moved to the next edit and it did have the option available:

The title is a plain text field; no markdown is interpreted in it. As such, there is no point in showing a markdown diff.

You'll see the same (no diff options) when reviewing suggested edits for tag excerpts, and when only the tags on a question have been changed.

In other words; this is no , but .

Edits involving only title and/or tag will not have markdown diff.
