  • Show command on toolbar logic

    What's the logic for when to allow 'Show command on toolbar' in the Customize Commands dialog?

    I had quick compare there in BC2.

    Sorry, Compare Contents is what I was looking for ... it's there.

    So what is Quick Compare? I don't see it on the Actions menu.

      Do you mean Compare Contents from BC2?

      Quick Compare allows for that pop-up, while Compare Contents actually runs the scan.

        Do you have two files selected, or a file that has another file aligned with it (to trigger the Quick Compare option's visibility)?

          I thought a Quick Compare compared the contents of a folder with "Quick Test" rules while a "Compare Contents" used the extended "Compare Contents" rules (if defined under the session settings).
          But in build 445 I don't see the Quick Compare in the context menu when I select two opposing folders.
          Did something change, or am I mistaken about seeing a Quick Compare in a folder session in a prior build?
          Maybe it was just something that I suggested that has not been implemented???

          Edit: I guess I was fantasizing about what I thought would be a good implementation of a quick compare between folders. For whatever it's worth, I still think it is a good idea...a quick override for users with content compare criteria enabled in their session defaults...but that's another topic.

            In BC2, Quick Compare refers to the optional dialog you get when starting BC with a pair of files (eg. opening files from Explorer).

            Cirrus has the same feature but also allows it as a command in Folder Compare sessions. It only applies to a pair of files. It has nothing to do with the Quick Test rules settings.

              Now I understand/remember. I must have not had the correct selection earlier because I see it on the menu now.

              I never used this before but I see a particular value in it now. Comparing any two files in the folder view whose names are not the same.
