  • File Compare Report from Folder Compare view

    When comparing two folders, I find it useful to generate a file comparison report that shows all the differences between the two folders at a file level.

    The "File Compare Report" context menu item does exactly this, but is accessible only when files are selected (disappears if a single folder is selected).

    Instead of manually selecting the files with differences (which has result in me missing a few files), I recently realized you can:
    1. View -> "Show Differences"
    2. Edit -> "Expand All"
    3. Edit -> "Select All Files"
    4. Right click on any file and choose "File Compare Report..."

    While the above works, it would be nice if "File Compare Report" was always available and would operate on all selected files and recursively on all selected folders as if all child files and folders (visible in the current view mode) had been selected.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I like that idea, and I'll add it to our Customer Wishlist.
