    Linux Mint 18.1 Serena MATE desktop.

    This "feature" may actually be connected to the desktop being used, to the extent a "common" desktop provided dialog is being used.

    Or, BC may have rolled its' own, but somehow it seem to keep the...

    Thinking some more, an easy way might be to add another option like "Align filenames with different UNICODE...".

    Call it "Try to align filenames regardless of case".

    When checked,

    Thank you.

    If I understand correctly, the "Compare filename case" setting generally would be useful only for BC running Windows, because it's the underlaying OS that drives the decision for BC to...
  8. Filename case respected when option is off - Mint 18.1 Serena MATE

    First, I'm in a platform conversion from XP to Ubuntu Mint 18.2 Serena with the MATE desktop. BC4 is 32 bit Version 4.1.9 (build 21719). BC4 is running native Linux, not under Wine.

    Done.

    Sorry I mixed files in my example. I sent the longer one. Either will fail.
  11. New sorted .ini file (UTF-8) bug

    First, let me say the the viewers have evolved quite nicely over the last year. My complaints which started this forum have been heard!

    Arron,

    Please stop thinking "educate the user" for a moment.

    I understand what BC4 is doing.

    I disagree with the design decision.

    I strongly suggest that BC4 Archive compare logic flow...

    Thank you Araron,

    Yes, it certainly can't do a fold compare for corrupt archives.

    The fall back position is to do a file compare, but I hear you saying that BC4 will not do this.

    In other...
  14. Archive handling -- as folders -- can not open folder: can compare continue?

    BC4 is trying to open a damage or unknown format archive, and can not look at the individual files inside the archive to compare them member by member.

    Will it then just compare the two container...

    Should not I put a "$" afterwards to indicate I want it at the end of the line?
  16. How to mark trailing zeros on text file lines as an unimportant difference?

    I've got a bunch of text like files, .txt, .ini, .asc, etc.

    I want to mark lines that have trailing hex zeros as an unimportant difference.

    In "Session Settings, Text Compare" there is a field...

  20. Displaying only broken archive (folder) files

    I've noticed that BC4 will put kind of a tiny red x on the folder representing an archive file (.zip, .iso, etc) when it can not successfully open the archive to do a member by member compare.

    Is...

    I think I know where you're going with this. Bottom line is that I'm smarter than BC when it comes to the contents of my files.

    I tested the new Sorted INI viewer, and it handled the couple of UTF-8 files I gave it just fine.

    Thanks for the quick fix!
  23. Thank you

    Aaron,

    I realize it's your job to explain how BC works, and that oh so once in a blue moon a user actually bring a real live bug to your attention.

    I spent many years with a major mainframe...
