  • Find word only in differences

    I have a folder filled with files. I can use beyond compare to show me all the differences. But the "search" works for ALL text and I only want to search the text that is different for a certain keyword.

    How can I achieve this?

    You can filter files by keyword in the Folder Compare. Load your folders, then select "Session > Session Settings". Go to the "Other Filters" tab. Select "Text Content" as the filter type. Enter the text you want to filter on and click OK.

    This setting filters all files based on the "text to find value". BC doesn't have an option that only searches for the matching text that is also different. However, you can set "View > Show Differences" to only see files that are different and contain the matching text.
