Output filter options - Open diff tool ?

Post by DFH » Fri Dec 15, 2017 6:44 am

Suggested enhancement for the Output filter.

This would be useful for when there is a single input file and an output file with a different file name or extension.

Additional tick box option for Open diff tool (in which input and output files are compared).

If multiple input files are specified, the option should be greyed out.
Likewise if the output and input files are the same.
NB. If input file spec is a wildcard, assume that implies multiple files, even if there might happen to be only one match.

Best regards,

David

It would be easier to add from the log list. It could also then be generalised to compare multiple files.

If two files are already open in a tool like BeyondCompare, it will offer to reload them, so this is probably better as a more general feature.

What do you think?

Whichever is easiest to implement.

If it's usable, then you'll get feedback on the new feature.

Best regards,
