  • Align with file at different folder level

    Please add an option or tweak to allow a user to use the Align With context menu item on files at different folder levels. The expected result would be that BC3 would drill down through the deeper path until the folder containing the file to be aligned is at the same level as the folder with the file to be aligned in the shallower path. For example:

    LeftFolder
    --LeftFile

    RightFolder
    --RightSubFolder
    ----RightFile

    "Align With" used on LeftFile and RightFile would bring the RightSubFolder up to become the base level on the right side and align the LeftFile with the RightFile.

    LeftFolder
    --LeftSubFolder
    ----DeeperFolder
    ------LeftFile

    RightFolder
    --RightSubFolder
    ----RightFile

    Or, in this example, "Align With" used on LeftFile and RightFile would bring LeftSubFolder up to the base level, Align DeeperFolder with RightSubFolder, then align the LeftFile with the RightFile.

    Changing folder levels on one side would naturally break any alignments that were already in place in order to create the new alignment.

    Scooter: Is this request do-able? If so, has it been added to the ol' wish list?

      Thanks for the suggestion, Michael. This would be a very large project to undertake. It is on our wishlist, but would take a major overhaul to the Folder Compare in order to implement such a feature.
