    Default 13298 Mystery mismatch

    Can anyone tell me why here



    1) the left side shows the s as mismatched
    2) the right side does not show \30s\Loud\ as unimportant?

    And how to remedy.

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    Could you attach a full screen screenshot and include the View menu -> Aligned Details at the bottom of the pane. This will show us how the text is aligned.

    If you are still having any trouble, please email us a pair of sample files, your current Support package from the Help menu -> Support; Export, and include a link back to this forum post for reference. Thanks.

    Thanks, Chris.

    It looks like our intra-line algorithm is having trouble with that line, and is aligning the "s" in an unexpected place. I've added this text as a test case/scenario for us to look at.

    There is not a way to change this alignment in the current version. As a workaround, you can instead define \30s\Loud\ as a grammar item and mark it as Unimportant.
    If it is an adhoc comparison, you can manually verify the difference on this line and then Ignore it.

    Do these workarounds help with your comparison of these two files?

    OK, thanks.

    OK... but it is already marked as Unimportant - by a Replacement. Hence my question, why:

    2) the right side does not show \30s\Loud\ as unimportant?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks, by the comparison is not ad-hoc, and this mismatch occurs on too many lines (approx. one hundred) for manual to be affordable.

    Hello Chris,

    The replacements work as a pair, when a specific section of text then matches to another section of text. The "s" appearing aligned in the middle of the statement is throwing this off.

    If defined as an Unimportant grammar item, then it only needs to work with one side, and "\30s\Loud" can be marked as unimportant text on its own.

    Since the results seem to be unstable, this different result (mismatch on 0 rather than s) may also be useful to you:

    I'm finding the replacement text's failure to show as Unimportant is occuring even with the sides edited to remove the false alignment: http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/7317/region.png

    Can you tell me why this replacement text fails to show as Unimportant?

    Interestingly deleting "R:" from right side (whether by editing the side or setting a Replacement) avoids this failure. And avoids the original wayward alignment.

    Hi Chrisjj,

    Thanks for the screenshot. I tried recreating your files manually by typing out that line, but I'm not seeing the same behavior (alignment details) as you are. Please email us:
    1) A pair of sample files
    2) Your current support.zip (Help menu -> Support; Export)
    3) A link back to this forum post for reference.

    Thanks.

    I'm surprised Aaron. I get the fail with this simple test:

    1 Click Start New Session, Text Compare
    2 Enter in left \Curtain\2480002928225-1-5 and right R:\Curtain\30s\Loud\2480002928225-1-5
    3 In Session Settings, enter the Replacement right \30s\Loud\ to left \
    4 Inspect right \30s\Loud\

    Expected: Unimportant blue
    Observed: Important red - see http://img688.imageshack.us/img688/2293/regionv.png
