    Default Simple Regular Expression To Ignore Diffs

    I stripped this down to as simple as I could make it.

    In one text file, 3453
    In the other, 3467

    The expression to ignore is [0-9]*

    with Regular Expression checked. Why does it still show up as a difference?

    I've also tried [0123456789]



    Version 3

    Oh my god.

    Checking the box for that expression in the parent dialog means DO NOT IGNORE IT.


    [x] Check here if you do not want to not un-ignore the expression

    In the Text Compare Session Settings dialog, Importance tab, the text above the list of grammar elements states: Mark grammar elements that are important to the comparison. This means items that are checked are important (differences shown) and items that are unchecked are unimportant (differences shown as matches).
