    Hello,

    While not in the box yet, we do have a JSON sorted format available for download in our Additional File Formats section:

    Default Fall back for failed compare

    One problem with the current solution is that it reports an error if the JSON files are unable to be parsed by jq.exe. Would be nice to allow plugins to provide a fall-back format (such as text) if the plugin fails. Sample attached that fails on compare.

    Hello,

    Our external conversions do not support an automatic fallback since we need to inform users that the expected conversion failed, interactively or in a scripted solution. Changing to another format behind the scenes could lead to unexpected comparison results.

    We support defining multiple formats that match on the same extension in the Tools menu -> File Formats dialog. The topmost format is the one used automatically, while the other can be selected from the Text Compare's Format toolbar button dropdown if you need to switch.
