  • Prioritize syncing block of texts?

    I am comparing two text files that has many lines of similar contents. Is it possible to configure Beyond Compare to synchronize (deem the same) only blocks of texts? For example, synchronize only if 50 lines of texts are all identical. Thanks!

    Sorry, BC doesn't provide a way to only align by blocks of text.

    If you're comparing CSV or tab delimited data, using the Data Compare instead of the Text Compare might help.

    If the Data Compare isn't appropriate, you can try tweaking the alignment settings. To change the Alignment Settings, select "Session > Session Settings" and go to the "Alignment" tab. Sometimes selecting "Alternate method" can give you better results if your text is very repetitive.
