  • Quick Compare Open View

    This opens in a new window despite Options

    Open sessions in
    ( ) A new window
    (*) A new tab
    Open child sessions in
    ( )A new window
    (*) A new tab

    How do I get it to open in a new tab?

    Also, what's the difference between an View and a Session here?

    A new View currently implies that it is not an open Session command, or opening a child session.

    I will add it to our customer wishlist to consider this case.

      One of our developers is going to look into this, and it may be included in the next release.

        I take that as "You can't".

        Not here. Which is just as well, since it /does/ open a new session.

        I suggest it would be worth the design team reviewing that assumption of implication. If there's a reason why Open View could not be Open Session... then it seems something is not as it should be.

        You don't say what "it" is.

          Hi Chris,

          Unless otherwise specified, a new session view is intended to respect the Open sessions in a new window/tab option. In 3.1.6, the only failure to follow this that we are aware of is the Quick Compare command in the Folder Compare. This should be fixed in our next release. It works as intended from the shell extension and command line.

          To clarify, a "session" is a comparison and all its settings. A "view" is the visual display of a session. The button says Open View because it has already created the session to get its answer and clicking the button will visually display it.
