Re: Unable to ignore space/tab conversion in 4.20

On the "View" menu, turn on "Hide Unimportant Differences" and see if that helps or changes things. There are too many options I know and it can be a bit confusing at times. But here are 2 steps in there: [1] whether to ignore (strip out) spaces and/or tabs (and case folding and etc) when vertically...

Re: DiffMerge error messages on OSX (Mavericks)

Could you give us a little more information about your system.

Which version of DiffMerge do you have?
Which version of OS X do you have?

What is the command line that causes the error?

Does it run OK when launched from Finder?

thanks

Re: DiffMerge error messages on OSX (Mavericks)

These are harmless warnings from a library that DiffMerge links with.
Annoying yes, but harmless.

I'm waiting on a fix in that library and then I can do another release
to quiet that message.

Re: Bug and other problems...

Hello, WRT the NUL problem: Yes, I've never liked that dialog or the need for it, but DiffMerge does everything in Unicode and NUL chars aren't allowed. Forcing the importer to assume ANSI/ASCII won't fix that since there isn't a Unicode character to map the NUL chars to. I could add an option to re...

Re: DiffMerge on openSUSE 13.1

I haven't personally tested with SUSE in a very long time, so I'm going to have to give a bit of a hand-wave answer here. Can you install the libpng15 libraries from 12.3 onto your system (along side the existing libpng16 libraries) ? http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=libpng15.so.15...

Re: Request: Create indicator for amount of change

Have you looked at the "Lines to Omit" in the various Rulesets? With that you can declare one or more Regular Expressions describing lines that should be omitted when file pairs are compared. You could then describe a pattern for those time stamp lines and not get "false positives". Open the Options...

Re: Empty Diff window when launching from TortoiseHg on MacO

I'm not sure, but it sounds like TortoiseHG is not putting the files to be compared on the command line. To test this, let TortoiseHG start DiffMerge and then go to the About Dialog and then click on Support. This should raise a dialog with a bunch of info about the current session. Near the top is ...

Re: weird results git dir-diff option

Yeah, you're right. When I added code to treat symlinks as first class citizens in the tree (and therefore let you see that a pair of symlinks have the same/different target), I broke the previous ability to have a file on one side and a symlink on the other (either pointing back to the first or to ...

Re: Error when launching DiffMerge

It's coming from DiffMerge, but it's nothing to worry about. DiffMerge is requesting a font for drawing text on the screen and there's a library routine somewhere complaining that I'm using a generic name for the font, rather than a PostScript name. (which is doubly odd because those same library ro...

Re: Shorcut keys for prev/next diff (Mac OSx)

try Command+Option+Down and +Up

(it's not quite as convenient as the windows binding,
but there were some standards on the mac that i had
to avoid.)

Re: Can't select files for diff on OS X that has permission

I'm not sure what could be causing that in the "Open Files..." dialog.
Files with 644 should be just fine.

Could it be that you're clicking on "Open Folders..." rather than "Open Files..." ?
When that dialog is up, the regular files are grayed.

Re: "Benefits of registration" dialog popup frequency?

That dialog only appears when you haven't registered (paid). It should appear any time the program is launched if it has been at least an hour since the last program launch. I'll log a bug against the /dev/null issue so it'll do the right thing and not complain about the file. But I won't be able to...

Re: Unified View?

Currently, we only support a unified diff when exporting to text or html.
The GUI window always shows the side-by-side diffs. That's a feature I
want to add, but haven't had time for yet.

Sorry,
