We appreciate the feedback. We wanted to decouple the Text Compare's Orphan color from the Text Merge color settings, to allow users to customize different colors for each, but also didn't want to create too many extra options so it was trimmed down to a single "Orphan" concept, similar to the Folder Compare and other Compare types. If there are any specific workflows, screenshots, or feedback you or other customers would like to leave, please feel free and we can consider expanding it.
