    Also tried this with individual files (same git command, without "-d") and get "file not found" errors; again, files appear to be created and destroyed immediately in the temp directory.

  10. Can't drag files into BC4 from Window Explorer

    I have both BC3 and BC4 installed on a Windows 7 PC. I can drag files & folders into BC3 for a new comparison, but not into BC4. What do I need to do to enable D&D into BC4 (it's fine if I lose the...

    New beta soon?

    I'm running the latest BC4 beta (build 18629) and it is claiming I've got 1 day remaining for evaluation. Will there be a new beta soon, or is there some way to reset the timer?

    It helps that timestamps are usually the first thing in a line, so you can start your regex with "^" and avoid false matches in the middle of a line.

    Another possibility would be to have the copy arrow on the topmost visible line of the selection, rather than the top or bottom of the selction (either one of which can scroll out of visibility).

    Can you wrap your call to Pretty Printer in a batch file that takes your arbitrary file name as a parameter and either redirects stdout to that file or copies the .spp file to it?
