ExamDiff Pro 6.0: Overall Difference Navigation

ExamDiff Pro 6.0 will introduce Overall Difference Navigation, which allows for smarter and more accurate navigation between text file differences.

The new feature will arrive in the form of two new commands, which can also be found in the Navigation menu after text file comparison: Next Overall Difference and Previous Overall Difference .

The Next Overall Difference button will navigate to the next inline change or the next added or deleted block relative to the cursor. Please note that blocks or changes that are marked as skipped will not be included in the navigation.

The following example demonstrates the behavior of the Overall Difference Navigation command.

 Initial Position

First Navigation - after the first use of the Next Overall Difference command, the cursor shifts to the first block of deleted text.

Second Navigation - the second click shifts to the following in-line change.

Third Navigation - the third use of the command navigates to the next in-line change.

The Previous Overall Differences button will essentially act the same way as the Next Overall Differences button but in the opposite direction, relative to the cursor position.

The new feature will enable greater access and understanding of comparison results and more dynamic navigation of differences.

ExamDiff Pro 6.0: Quick View Filters

ExamDiff Pro 6.0 will introduce Quick View Filters, which will allow for easier and more accessible filtering of comparison results.

In addition to the existing Use View Filter command, there are three new commands: Show All , Show Only Differences , and Show Only Newer/Older Items . All of them can be used without making changes in Options | Display | View Filter.

The Show All button will show all lines (for file comparison) or directory items (for directory comparison), regardless of differences or view filters set in the Options:

The Show Only Differences button will hide all identical lines or directory items and show only differences.

The Show Only Newer/Older Items button applies only to directories and will display only items that have Newer and/or Older status.

These new commands will enable users to have greater control over the displayed results, while also making it easier and faster to toggle the view filters.
