    Lightbulb View only Unimportant Differences

    Hi all from Scooter Software,

    Is there a way to view only Unimportant Differences in a file compare?

    There is only "Ignore Unimportant Differences" in the View Menu. I need the opposite.

    I am running version 4.1.9

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    Our Display Filters do not currently support this type of toggle. The Ignore Unimportant Differences toggle will set Show Differences to either show:
    All Important and Unimportant Differences
    or
    Show Important Differences (if unimportant is ignored).

    If you disable Ignore Unimportant Differences, those differences will be blue, which could help visually identify them, but we don't have a toggle to remove the red differences.
    However, if you go to the Session menu -> Session Settings, Importance tab, you can invert the current checkboxes: uncheck the checked items, and check the unchecked items. This would make the "unimportant" items important, and then use the combination of Ignore Unimportant and Show Differences to show only these items.
