  • Large text files -> hourglass forever in "Show All" mode?

    I am comparing two text files about 100 MB each. It takes a reasonable amount of time to load the comparison in the "Show Differences" mode. Around some tens of seconds. But when I click on the "Show All" button it takes many many minutes before the hourglass would go away. (Windows thinks the program is non-responding and I almost killed the process.) Is this a known issue?

    Thank you for reporting the problem, I repeated it on a test system with two 100 MB files, each about 1 million lines of text. The files took about 1 minute to load, but BC became non-responsive for about 30-60 seconds when changing between Show All and Show Differences.

    I'll add this to our list to work on for a future release.
