  • Trouble forcing alignment of file/folder names

    I'm trying to get a quick diff of a dev build of an application with the release version. I just wanted to quickly highlight the jars that are new.

    In dev, all of the jars are built with the pattern <lib>-TRUNK-SNAPSHOT.jar
    In the release, the jars have the pattern <lib>-

    See this screenshot:

    I tried to go in to the Rules and add an Alignment Override under the Misc tab for:
    *-TRUNK-SNAPSHOT.jar = *-

    but it didn't align. I also tried limiting it to just ./lib/ but that didn't change anything.

    I tried a refresh after making these changes.

    Am I doing it wrong or is there a problem with the feature? Maybe because .jar files can be treated as folders when they are opened?

    Thanks for the report. Your override looks correct and should work. I'll open a tracker entry to investigate this.

      The alignment override bug you reported is fixed in Beyond Compare 4.4.4, now available on the Download page.
