    Default Compare showing no differences, just alignment

    I am not quite sure how to phrase this question or what features of BC3 may be relevant. I have two flat text files containing sorted lists of 5-digit numbers, one per line, that represent the changelists in my SCM from two different branches. A few of the numbers are the same between both files, but most are different. I want to do a BC comparison that will not show lines in each file aligned but different. If the numbers (lines) in each file are different, they they should not be aligned. Since the lists are sorted, the comparison should show all the numbers in order, with only identical lines aligned and lines that share a few digits but are not identical should not be aligned but offset in sequential order. For example,
    Code:
     A  |  B
    ----+----
    123 | 124
    234 | 234
    354 | 344
    should look like
    Code:
     A  |  B
    ----+----
    123 | 
        | 124
    234 | 234
        | 345
    354 |
    Is this possible and how would I configure it?

    In the Text Compare, select "Session > Session Settings". Go to the "Alignment" tab. Check "Never align differences".
