    Default Next / Previous Difference arrows

    Wish the Next / Previous Difference arrows were darker when no match found.

    Current contrast is not as easy to see as in BC2. My thought would be to make the "no match" button darker. Easier to see out of the corner of your eye when working thru a large file.

    I agree. I believe I suggested this back in the Wordpress days. I would prefer a darker arrow when there are no more difference sections to find.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'll add this to our wishlist.

    Does anyone else prefer the BC2 style of Next/Prev buttons to the current look? Or perhaps prefer the button to be more subtle as it is now?

    The Next /Previous Differences arrows will be darker when no match found in the next release.

    I like the syle/color of the new buttons, but I think it would be better if each of the buttons became inactive (like the save button when you haven't made any changes) when it can no longer perform a valid function (previous button inactive when on the first difference, next button inactive when on the last difference, both inactive when no differences)

    That's thinking outside of the box. Sounds like a great idea.

    In BC2, they become inactive depending on the options set in Tools > Options > File Viewer > Next Difference. If you select the Do Not Change Position option, then the button is inactive when there are no more differences. The keyboard shortcut is still active and can cause a beep. If you select Wrap Around or Open Next Mismatched Files then the icon changes color.

    In Cirrus, we can't disable the button without disabling the keyboard shortcut. Cirrus has different Next Difference options, but if you disable Wrap Around and Show Message Panel we could disable the button (since we no longer beep in that circumstance). I'll look into making that change.

    Default Please restor next file on no more diff option

    I quite like the BC2 option of going strait from one file to the next if there are no more differences to be found in the current file. Can the option for this be added back?

    Default Scrolling of the line detail to first diff

    When using the setting to open the 2-way diff at the first difference, if the line is long, and the first difference in not visible in the left most part of the line, the line view part of the window does not scroll the line over to be able to view the first diff on the line.

    If the next/previous diff is used to get to the line, however, the line view is scrolled to the first diff on the line. Could this be applied in the above case too?

    If you're using the keyboard, you can use Ctrl+M for "Next Difference Files". If you're using the mouse, make sure "Show message panel" is checked in your "Next Difference" options page. When there are no more differences, you will see a message panel at the bottom of the view with a link you can click on for "Next Difference Files".
