  • A quick question about file names

    Hi, I've looked throught the help and FAQ and do not see where the "(r)" that shows up after some file names is described. I'm assuming this means the comparison for that filename is a "rules" based comparison. Can someone please confirm this or tell me what it means, and point me to the doc on this feature?

    Thanks, Rich

    The (r) indicates a file or folder has the read-only attribute set.

    To set or clear attributes, use the Actions > Attributes command.

    The (r) is documented in the Using Beyond Compare > Folder Compare > Understanding the Display article in Beyond Compare 4's help file.

    Rules-based and other content comparison results are indicated by an equal or not equal icon in the center column between files.
