    Default 12204 Suggestion: Don't report "x Cancelled"...

    ... when the comparison operation in fact was terminated by BC Out of Memory.

    Particularly since the misleading message is at the top of the window and hence most prominent, and the clarifying one is right at the bottom where it is easily overlooked.

    Thanks. What type of compare are you running that is running into this situation. Could you post a screenshot?

    Text Compare (2-way).

    In return, could you please give my forum attachment allowance some free space? The lack, and imageshack.us workaround's slowness deters me from posting images here.

    Here's a replacement



    for the original defaced by BC3's sluggish repaint.

    Please pass to the Devs the suggestion that this BC repaint should do better than 4sec on a 3GHz Pentium with 2Gb RAM.

    Thanks for the screenshot, Chris. I'll make a tracker entry to look into it.

    BC3 is sluggish because it looks like you opened up two 2gig text files on a machine with only 2 gigs of ram. This would definitely run out of ram and would be swapping with the harddrive. Any other program you open this size of data should see similar behavior, unless it does not open the entire file.

    During a repaint?? I do hope not.

    Not reproduced here. E.g. The repaint of Textpad holding those same two files is virtually instant.
