  • Feature Request:Ignore similar differences


    What I would really like to see in BC is a way to quickly ignore similar differences.

    For example if I have changed a variable name in my code from A to B, I would like to right click on the difference and select 'ignore similar differences'. All A to B changes is then ignored and I can focus on the other differences. Is this something that can be implemented?

    We do not have this logic built into a context command, but Beyond Compare 3 Pro already has Text Replacements.

    In BC3Pro, go to the Session menu -> Session Settings, Replacements tab. Enter A on the Left and B on the Right and they will be considered equal if they are lined up with each other, and different if they are lined up with other text.

    If you have already registered for Std edition, here is a guide on how to try out Pro features:
    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.
