Preserve installation path

Hello. Usually, when a new EDP version is out, I reinstall it via uninstall and install again (my habit from Windows 9x times). I want to install EDP on D:, but the default path is always C:, when I install it after uninstall. So sometimes I forget to pay attention to this, and by mistake install ED...

Can't remove participation in syntax highlighting

Hello. I compare two .CPP files, and EDP always paints panels according to C++ syntax, without regard to "Participate in syntax highlighting" option state. I see "CPP" extension only in one document type, where I try to remove the participation. Recompare or relaunching EDP after...

Hello. Let's suppose I have a file with 200 lines, and each line consists of text "Line 1" only (means all lines are the same). Let's assume I have second file with the same contents except line #100, which is "Line 2". Comparing these two files (no ignores) gives us proper compa...

If "Include" filter is empty, I would suggest to EDP developer to think about some warning, because there is no chance to see proper results (unless for debugging purpose). Or such warning already exists?

Maybe this feature can be achieved by simply adding "Append" checkbox to the "save diff" window? Or this window does not support adding elements?

As usual, if the file being saved does not exist, "Append" will have no meaning. Even no need to make it gray.

Yes, this feature seems to me very complicated and with a high risk of many potential bugs. Maybe there is a chance to see some particular case of it, i.e. comparing line-by-line (though I don't know what to do with binary files)? This seems to me simple enough, and in demand of several users - both...

Question to EDP developer: is it possible to turn off the intelligence of EDP, and show files line-by-line - without getting lines to be indicated as moved, deleted or inserted? No, it isn't. We've been thinking about implementing "fuzzy matching" where the user would be able to define th...

Dear Alex, Indeed this is a very similar gap in EDP's functionality, as described at: http://www.prestoforums.com/viewtopic.php?t=421 I cannot understand why EDP developers implemented the very complex matching/synchronization routines, but did not do simple byte-by-byte comparison like most compar...

psguru Thanks for the answer. I compare 2 text files (logs files). The information in them is written down by blocks. It is visible in drawing. All blocks are already synchronous. It is necessary for me to see changes in each line simply. Synchronisation is not necessary to me. How to turn off sync...

The fix is in the latest build (3.5.1.10).
(Sometimes nostalgia makes me to reread old messages...)

Probably you were speaking about v3.5.0.10, because v3.5.1.10 does not exist even today.

Hello. The original idea of several variants of saving options is interesting. And it is not necessary related to making changes in multiple instances of EDP. E.g., I often compare files of data produced by different systems, and thus requiring various Ignore options (regular expressions, column ran...

In such case I can't reproduce/explain your issue. What OS are you using? Also, is it 32- or 64-bit? Windows XP Pro + SP2 + all updates. I think it is 32 bits, but don't know how to verify this; maybe motherboard data will help: Motherboard with two CPU-s: CPU #0 Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz, ...

I think I found the culprit. In your second installation, did you have "Enable Windows Explorer Integration" selected? If not, your error can be explained. You should not get the error if tis option is enabled. The fix will be added to the next build of 3.5. Hello. I have this option sele...
