  • Recursive file search

    When I use the folder compare mode to compare large source code files sometimes I want to navigate quickly to a file which is located deep inside the folder tree. It is possible to search _recursively_ for a file name then expand the tree automatically to show that file?

    To quickly jump to a filename, Edit > Expand All, left click in the left or right pane to give it focus, then type in a name to search.

    To only display files matching a name, enter the name in the Filters toolbar and hit Enter, then Edit > Expand All.

    Beyond Compare doesn't provide a search method that will automatically expand subfolders.
