  • Feature request: exclude read only files

    I have a merge between 3 large branches
    Both branches have been isolated from the main branch for about 3 months.
    I only want to see the differences in files i have checked out.

    basically a filter by file attribute would be nice but all i need right now is to filter out all the read only files.

    please post if you can't follow my train of thought here.

    If you have BC3 Pro, you can integrate with Source Control:
    Beyond Compare is a multi-platform utility that combines directory compare and file compare functions in one package. Use it to manage source code, keep directories in sync, compare program output, etc.

    And filter on Status under the Session menu -> Session Settings -> Other Filters.

    Here you can also filter on Read-only, if that is all you need.

    You will need to compare 2 branches at once (one pair, then the other pair). 3 way Folder Merge is on our wishlist for a future version.
