    Default Dont create orphan lines.

    Hi,

    I want to do a line by line comparison of data that looks like the attached.

    I don't understand why orphan lines are generated ?

    Is there a way to request a line by line comparison.

    I'm using BC v3.

    Thanks
    David

    BC3's Text Compare has alignment methods that try to find matching/close lines and align them, to better handle inserted text. This can be tweaked or disabled in the Session menu -> Session Settings, Alignment tab: Unaligned.

    Thank you Aaron, that's exactly what I needed.

    I love Beyond Compare.

    I've also just realised that I'm using my personal V3 but my employer has 10 licenses for V4 so I must take a look at the new features in V4.

    Hello,

    You can also use BC3 and BC4 at the same time on Windows; their settings are separate. This way you can try out and learn BC4 while still using BC3 for day to day tasks.
