  • How to find what I've changed

    How can I find what edits I've made in a BC3 session?

    Here's what promps the question. I was comparing two C++ source files when the phone rang. Two long conversations later, I'm back to my BC3 session.

    When I try to close the files I'm comparing, I'm prompted to "save changes". But I don't remember making any changes and don't want to save OR abandon them until I know what BC3 thinks I've changed.

    This has got to be simple to do...

    The "Search" menu has "Next/Previous Edit" commands. There are also some buttons on the bottom of the right scrollbar that you can play with.

      Thanks, Craig.

      I knew there had to be a way to get the job done (and I won't tell you how long I tried to figure it out on my own!).

      Would you consider an option to highlight or identify the lines I've changed in some way? My text editor does this and I find it very useful.

        Edited lines show a yellow highlight in the gutter, just like Visual Studio. For deleted lines it should show up on the following line. I believe it actually shows the yellow in the thumbnail on the left side, but it's only a pixel or two per line, so it's almost invisible.

          I had looked for a marker in the gutter earlier and didn't see it. Now that you point it out, sure enough, it's there (perhaps it's my aging eyes, but I find the default yellow nearly invisible - I'm glad you provided a way to change it!).
