Ignoring column ranges is broken

Here are two files: file1.txt: 111 Line1 111 Line2 file2.txt: 222 Line1 222 Line2 Comparison options: Ignore column ranges 1-3 (columns are defined as characters). EDP v12: Shows no differences as it should be. EDP v13.0.1.4: Shows both lines different. I think this is a bug. I wanted to try other s...

Downgrade error

Hello. I researched some problem in EDP, and for this I decided to try earlier EDP version. I had EDP v13, and then downloaded and launched "edpro120_64bit_setup.exe". Installation properly asked me to confirm that I want to downgrade, and after my confirmation it completed successfully. H...

Different behaviour of the same option

If we have enabled option: Tools->Options...->Misc->Messages->"Some comparison options have changed" message and then toggle option: Tools->Options...->Text Comparison->Ignore white spaces in lines->All then we indeed see the prompt "Some comparison options have changed. Would you lik...

Re: ExamDiff Pro 9.0 don't recognize changed files

I'm not sure that it's file timestamp. I suspect that it's MS Windows API mesasge WS_FILE_SYSTEM_CHANGED (or something like this) which is sent to all running Win32+ applications when something is written to disk (at least, to local disk), regardless of directory entry which holds timestamps.

Re: ExamDiff Pro 9.0 don't recognize changed files

Then you are lucky, because you get the correct picture at least after you re-compare. In my corporate network, even after recomparing several times, I sometimes still see the old picture, so I have to relaunch the viewing S/W (ExamDiff Pro in our case). This is probably because of some over-caching...

Re: ExamDiff Pro 9.0 don't recognize changed files

Could it be that at least one of the compared files (or both) is/are located on network drives?

Re: suppress merge window for 3-file diff?

OK, thanks for considering addition of 3 files comparison. But maybe it would be worth to mention that adding 3 files comparison will only align EDP with some competitors (from the point of view of this specific feature). However, N files comparison will put EDP in front of them. I did not perform m...

Re: suppress merge window for 3-file diff?

Hello. If I understand correctly, the original post was about just comparing three files, probably without any relation to a merge operation. If we look on it this way, then: - Maybe this has been already implemented? Taking into account that 3-way merge already exists, this seems to be pretty close...

And in addition, this forum is pre-moderated. So even in case of security breach into a regular user account, the potentially malicious post won't be published (and such dilution is actually happening).

"Ignore Linebreak styles" to custom toolbar

Hello. I would like to be able to toggle option "Ignore Linebreak styles" via customized toolbar. In my work I often have to compare files that came from Unix and Windows, and one of the main differences is line feed format. Currently I have to go to Options menu, then to "Text Compar...

Re: Comparing sensitive data

In case of working with sensitive data, users may concern about malicious restoring those temporary files after deletion. In such specific cases users may want to replace "deletion of temporary files on exit" by "wiping temporary files on exit", which means that the deletion will...

No, I was installing 32-bits installer in 32-bits Windows over 32-bits old version.

Installation directory is default instead of previous

Hello. Today I installed EDP Pro v6 over v4.5.2.2. My v4.5.2.2 was installed in D:\Program Files\... I downloaded v6 and launched the installer without uninstalling v4.5.2.2. I expected the installer of v6 to prompt me the old directory when I tried to install v6, but instead it suggested me to inst...
