  • More initial file masks


    I find many of the new features in BC3 really great (currently evaluating for use in our company). But some file format specific features are not automatically available, just because the file masks are missing. E.g. the first thing I compared were XML schemas (*.xsd). Those were not recognized as XML, therefore the "ignore unimportant differences" feature did not work as best as it could.

    The same holds true for several other file format masks. Therefore I suggest you spend some time to add more file format masks to the initial settings as you can greatly improve the user experience for people using those formats (and you have already implemented all the details behind those formats!).

    Ciao, Michael

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Side Note:
    One resource you may not be aware of is our additional File Formats:
    Beyond Compare is a multi-platform utility that combines directory compare and file compare functions in one package. Use it to manage source code, keep directories in sync, compare program output, etc.

    (also, a blue link at the bottom of the file formats dialog).
