    Default Comparing Remobjects schema files

    This are XML files, but saves every item correlative number so if you make a single change at the start the compared return thousands of not importante changes

    example

    file 1

    </Item8>

    file 2

    </Item9>


    I need to set comparer to IGNORE that changes and can't find how to do.
    Before the text, as is dented can be a variable amount of spaces and tab chars.

    Any help please.
    Best regards.

    Hello,

    Is the issue that the alignment or sorting the nodes is off? Or is there a correct alignment that needs to be ignored as a specific change?

    For the former, we could help with tips for the Session Settings, Alignment tab, or the additional download of XML Sorted or Tidied formats.
    For the later, Pro mode has a Text Replacements session setting that can define a specific change as unimportant (item8 = item9). Or you can generically ignore any changes in an item node with a defined grammar.
    If you are running Std edition, you can try out Pro features with this KB article:
    http://www.scootersoftware.com/suppo...?zz=kb_evalpro
    And defining Unimportance (Std or Pro) can be done following this guide:

    If you can provide a full screen screenshot to help show a collection of differences you need to ignore, we can help define something more specific to help. You can post here, or email us at support@scootersoftware.com with a link back to this forum thread.

    Hello,

    The easiest method would be to mark the <ItemX> node as Unimportant. This could be done with a new grammar, type Basic:
    <Item\d+>
    Regular Expression

    This would match on that style node, and you can then make that element Unimportant. The walkthrough and video here would help:

    While using the BC3 interface, BC4's interface is similar. We also have an Unimportant v4 interface video here:
    http://www.scootersoftware.com/features.php?zz=v4videos

    Does this help get you up and running to ignore that difference? Please note, if it's blue text, that's correct; you also need to toggle on Ignore Unimportant Differences on the toolbar to hide blue text as black text.
