  • How to convert gaps to empty lines

    What should I do to export my carefully aligned files so that the gaps matter? The line numbers run up to 28,000 on one side and 19,000 on the other, but in the end I want all gaps to be filled with empty lines. This is a mapping, so if the gaps are lost, everything is lost.

    Any sort of merge is also very difficult.

    Are you saying that you want the null lines that BC3 creates when aligning two files to be replaced with a physical line feed characters so that the spacing remains when the files are unloaded from Beyond Compare?

      Yes, that's exactly what I want to achieve. If you use BC for this kind of task, it would also be great if one could save the alignment for later. I spent much time manually aligning the shorter list to the longer, but this added information can't be saved and is very easily lost.

        Would an acceptable solution be to setup a saved session for your pair of files that remembers your alignments? This is something that is on our Customer Wishlist.

        Or does your current workflow demand another solution?
