  • List similar files only - ignore unimportant diffs is off and files are equal

    I'm trying to list only the files which are
    - equal when the ignore unimportant differences is turned off and
    - similar when ignore unimportant differences is turned on

    I have >100 files to look through to find these similar files.
    Is there an easier way?

    Othewise, I have 2 wishes
    1) Could the difference (=,etc) between the two views/files, be sortable
    2) Add a show similar files to the view menu/toolbar

    To show only similar items:
    1. Select View -> Show Differences.
    2. Turn View -> Ignore Unimportant Differences on.
    3. Select Edit -> Expand All.
    4. Select Edit -> Select All Files.
    5. Select Actions -> Ignored.
    6. Turn View -> Ignore Unimportant Differences off.


    We'll add your other suggestions to our wishlist.

      Thanks Erik, this worked a treat.

      Another wish
      It would be nice, if the session could save the 'ignored' files

        Using "Exclude" instead of "Ignored" might be a solution.

          If you don't follow these steps correctly, how do you redisplay/reset the ignored files?

          I mistakenly ignored using 'Select All' instead of 'Select All Files' and I tried showing all and reseting the ignored but after that I couldn't get the filters to work and even a full refresh didn't reset the settings. The only way out is to start again.

          Exclude instead of Ignored would have helped at this point but is there any way of reseting the ignored files? Are they listed anywhere on the session settings/filters?

            It's easy:
            1. show all or at least all same files
            2. select all files
            3. apply ignored again from context menĂ¼ or Actions-Ignored
              (once if only ignored files are now selected, twice if any non-ignored file is selected, the state is shown by the ignored button pressed or released)
