  • Code comments are not seen as a diff

    using BC 3.3.5

    RE .cs and .vb files:

    When the only changes to a file are new/changed comments, hitting ctrl-N does not take me to the comment, and the changed comment lines are not in color in the nav bar on left.

    Ouch!

    A comment is as significant as code....

    How can I make this work?

    (I am using %100 factory settings)

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    By default, we consider comments Unimportant, which will color them blue. If the Ignore Unimportant Differences toggle is enabled, then the blue differences will show as black, and will be treated as equal text.

    If Comments are actually important, we can change these defaults on the main Home screen, in the Saved Sessions list. Expand the Edit session defaults folder, select Text Compare, and go to the Importance tab. Checked items are Important, Unchecked are Unimportant. Check Comments, or any other grammar or type of white space you want to be important by default, then save the new defaults. Any future Text Compare sessions will use these settings; any previously saved Text Compare's will need to update their settings individually.
