Ignore Difference Folders comparison Manual matching

If you work in Compare It! with single files pair for some time, you may want to hide already reviewed changes block, so you don't have to look at it over and over again. This is when you may need Ignore Difference feature.

Once selected difference is ignored (or hidden), it will be drawn as same text; Find Next/Prev Diff command would not stop on it; appropriate mark would also disappear from Overview bar. You can still identify such changes block by yellow margin.

Similarly to Manual Match anchors, Ignore Diff marks will survive rescan command, but will be lost once you close Compare It! or select another files to compare.

To set Ignore Diff mark:

Once current line is within changes block, choose Merge > Ignore Diff > Set Mark menu command, or press CTRL + K shortcut.

To remove Ignore Diff mark:

Once current line is within ignored changes block, choose Merge > Ignore Diff > Remove Mark menu command, or press CTRL + L shortcut.
You can also remove all such marks with single command: Merge > Ignore Diff > Remove All

To navigate through ignored blocks:

There are 3 special commands to help you navigate between ignored changes blocks, all under Merge > Ignore Diff menu:

  • Find first - go to the first ignored block within file;
  • Find next - go to the next ignored block, starting from current line;
  • Find prev - go to the previous ignored block.
