Beta 11.0.0.1 Sessions and LineInspector Questions

Post by eleboek »

Hi,
i am new to ExamDiff - before i used WinMerge. I have two questions:

1. It is possible to save sessions. The last session will be saved as "unnamed default session". Is it also possible to autosave the last X (maybe 10) sessions and autogenerate a name wich is mix of th ecompared files names?

2. I want to compare two lines. Sorry, but phpBB does not let me copy the code in the

Code: Select all

Codesegment
for reasons i dont know...

My settings are: "ignore linebreak styles", "lines and words", "fuzzy line matching = 60, matching method characters".
I get this:
lineinspector_01.png
lineinspector_01.png (21.84 KiB) Viewed 4113 times

Is it possible to add empty space in LineInspector to synchronize line views (like its also done to synchronize file views)? I simulated this feature with #
lineinspector_02.png
lineinspector_02.png (18.17 KiB) Viewed 4113 times
I marked 2 parts A_DBB[ with red circles - why are these like seen on the screenshot2 (left file / first line in lineinspector), and not swapped? the left should be cyan and the right should be green in my opinion.

thanks

No, sessions have to be saved manually.

It's not.

Thanks for your reply. Do you also have an answer for my last question?

So now i have an feature request for the "empty space in LineInspector"-stuff :-)

Hard to see without actual texts to simulate comparison locally but I don't see a problem here: cyan color in your example denotes deleted blocks, and that's what the first/left line has as compared to the second/right lone.

I have a solution for the code: https://pastebin.com/EM9tPcHd

Maybe it is because of the different number of brackets before the $A_DBB ...

A tool like the "synchronizing splitter" for the LineInspector would be helpfull in this situation.

I really don't see a problem here. This is how most diff tools would work.

It'd be nice but the UI is hard to imagine...

the UI could be done the same way as the ruglary synchronizing splitter, just horizontal between the two lines at the lineinspector-screen. but then you also need the posibility to show "empty space" in lineinspector for synchronizing. and instead of lines you just usw the oclumns / number of character in the line :)
