    Default Feature Request: More intelligent XML Element Comparison

    When comparing two xml files, the result looks like this when an element is missing:

    Code:
    <elem>            <elem>
    foo               foo
    </elem>           </elem>
    <elem>            <elem>             
    bar               
    </elem>            
    <elem>
    bash              bash
    </elem>           </elem>
    It would be better if it looks like this:
    Code:
    <elem>            <elem>
    foo               foo
    </elem>           </elem>
    <elem>             
    bar               
    </elem>            
    <elem>            <elem>
    bash              bash
    </elem>           </elem>

    This would require having special rules for xml (and html) files.

    Thanks for the example, Brian.

    Improving our alignment is something we are always working on, and this is a case we would like to handle better in a future version of Beyond Compare.

    We do have some additional rules that help standardize whitespace for XML and HTML files, available here:

    But they probably won't help with this specific alignment issue.
