#1 compare 2 files with Text Diff

Posted by: djehres | Date: 06/11/2012 22:22 | IP: IP Logged

Is there a way to compare 2 files and have the difference written to a 3rd file?

Have 1 file open then:
Tools => Text Differences => Text Diff with this file...

and have the results written to a 3rd open file?

In the past I have to copy and paste out of the 2nd file to get the differences.

thanks.

Yes it's easy, but "kind of hidden".

Just after opening the second file, you get 5 ikons above them both.

Leftclick the last one to the right, called "Results processing", when you point your mouse over it, and then select "missing lines into new file". smiling smiley
