    In BC4's Home view, select a session, then click "Edit" to display the session settings. Click the pin button on the top right of the session settings to keep them displayed.

    Selecting "View > Show Session Management" will also keep session settings displayed.

      That's nothing like it.

      Likewise.

        The BC4 Home View has all of the functionality of the BC3 one: A session treeview, buttons to launch the different comparison types, and a panel for editing the selected session. If you don't like the changes you'll need to be more specific than "That's nothing like it".

          Now many hidden by default.

          Only when I "Edit" a session manually. On BC3, the session settings showed automatically in the right panel which IIUC is gone from BC4.

            Which is easy to customize. Beyond Compare's flexibility can be overwhelming for new users, so we're always trying to find a balance between them and our power users.

            When you're editing the session there's a pin button on the top-right corner of that panel. If you click it the editing panel will stay open.

              I thought simple/expert mode covered that.

              Ah, now I see. I'd read your previous explanation as literally referring to the settings rather than the panel.

              I'm OK now. Thanks.

              But if you're taking votes on the right-side menu, mine is No. Simultaneously offering the same commands in two menus of different designs in different subsets is IMHO backward design.

              If not, then I would like an option to turn off the right-side menu. I never want to see it. Window resize will do - if the current cropping of the left panel was remedied.
