    Default find next difference inside a line

    using BC 4 v. 4.1.5
    I am comparing data files with very long data lines (1000+ characters!), and a line may have one or more points of difference, while everything else is the same. I cannot use "ignore" or "unimportant" settings, as the differences are meaningful (!) , may happen in any place and have no pattern.
    The different characters are marked in red, but scrolling to the difference is tedious and it is very easy to miss a difference especially if it is just one character!
    Is there a way to jump to the next difference inside a line?
    Thank you
    Mia

    Yes, the toolbar button is the Next Difference Section command, but we also have the Next Difference command which can navigate within a line. This hotkey can be customized in the Text Compare's Tools menu -> Customize Commands dialog. Default is Ctrl+Shift+N.
