|Using Alternative viewers
Unlike converters, which extract text from various formats and pass it to the
text comparison engine, viewers can handle non-text files directly. Appropriate viewer can compare and display such files
according to it's contents.
Currently only 2 additional built-in viewers are available - binary and image comparison. In future
more viewers will be released, custom API for independent viewers development is also planned for future.
How to enable or disable viewer
You can toggle usage of a specific viewer by toggling appropriate checkbox in page.
How to invoke viewer automatically for certain file types
When you specify file mask in viewer configuration, Compare It will try to automatically load these files
to selected viewer. Note that you can choose one of preset file filters, so you can edit it in single place later.
Additionaly, you can set Autodetect file type option to try identifying file type by contents.
