  • Could alignment overrides work with swap sides?

    If I set up an alignment override Apple*=Orange* and then swap sides in the folder view, could the override change to Orange*=Apple*, please? Excellent feature, by the way; one of the major reasons I upgraded to Pro!

    Interesting request. Currently, if a user enters an override backwards, they might try swapping sides as a quick & easy way to "fix" it. Swapping the override when sides are swapped would break that.

    However... I do like the idea... so I'll cast a neutral vote and leave it up to Scooter on how they choose to handle it.

      Sorry, Folder Compare's "Alignment overrides" (and Text Compare's "Replacements") can't be swapped in several cases (ex. "Regular expression" checked). However, we'd consider someday adding a session setting to force all overrides/replacements to be performed on the right instead of the left.

        ... and that directional setting would be toggled by the Swap command.
