  • Default Automatic synchronisation

    After comparing folders, the window show files and folders that are different, but the synchronisation is not automatic.
    You must either click the "automatic synchronization" during the comparison, or click "Sync now" at the end of the comparaision.
    I want the synchronization to occur automatically by default at the end of the comparison
    Thank you for your answer.

    It looks like mdes is helping you in the French forum, here:

    He is correct, and we do not currently support an automatic sync in the graphical interface. Scripting is documented in the Help file -> Using Beyond Compare -> Automating with Script chapter. I always suggest testing out script with a pair of test folders. Script actions are not Undo-able, and do not preview before committing.

    The basic example script.txt is:
    log verbose "c:\bclog.txt"
    load "c:\folder1" "c:\folder2"
    sync update:left->right

    And the command line would be:
    bcompare.exe "@c:\script.txt"

      Thank you very much AARON.
      Your exemple script will be very useful for me.
      Beyond Compare + Aaron is a good association.

        I guess SCOOTER SOFTWARE fears that the automatic synchronization does have consequences for the user.
        However, the user is an adult and can take its responsabilities.
        It seems to me that, in session comparison settings, we could add an option box like "automatic synchronisaton " at the end of comparison.
        What do you think about this proposition ?

          Fear is a strong word, but we would want to make sure to design such an option so that it would be easy for people to use, but not easy for them to use accidentally.

          It is on our wishlist as a potential future enhancement.
