  • Compare by search string

    Hi -- Trying to take a list of files and identify one particular string that's different. For example, I want to find all the files that contain a certain word... or conversely, all files that do NOT contain that word. Looks like I can DO this string search in the file viewer, but only with one line selected... if I attempt to select ALL files, the 'find' icon is disabled.

    Something I'm missing?

    Thanks

    This isn't possible in the current version of Beyond Compare.

    Right now content searching is limited to one file at a time in the File Viewer.

    Searching across multiple files is on our wish list for a future version of Beyond Compare.

      Chris -- thanks!! Was this documented somewhere? I was hunting around the forums before I posted and didn't see anyone else commenting on it.

        We've had requests for this before, but I don't remember if it was in the forum or by email.
