    Default Having the Compare FileText view as Pane ?

    Is it possible to have the screen split in in two, the files/folder view on the hand side and have a pane on the right that shows the compare file content view. This would be handy if browsing files and just want to view the differences without having to open another tab, and closing it if we are not interested in the change,

    Basically, have a pane on left/right of the File/Folder compare view that display the tab contents in the pane.
    Like File view of windows explorer, except that in the pane we see the file contents comparison

    The pane can host automatic opened tab when the files are different and not change otherwise

    It isn't possible to display the Text Compare as a pane in the Folder Compare. However, this is on our feature wish list to consider for a future version of Beyond Compare.

    It doesnt have to be another pane, it very well can be another windows, but everytime a tab opens it opens in the same windows , so there are two windows , one that has the Files/Folders then another one that shows the current selected file from the other windows, as they move up or down in the file list the window changes it's contents, not having to open a new tab. Just for Quick diff browsing
