Is there an option to ignore case when running DiffMerge? I'm trying to compare SQL statements and I'm getting a bunch of false positives because of case.

Ex. These are the same query but DiffMerge shows a difference because of case.

Code: Select all
SELECT *
FROM table


Code: Select all
select *
from table

Go to Tools - Options - Rulesets. Then either edit the Default ruleset, or the ruleset under custom that applies to your file. In the Edit window, you can click on Line Handling and select the option to ignore case, and you can click on Line Handling to check that the option Case is Important is not selected.

This does not seem to be working in Version 3.3.0 (18513). It is still highlighting differences in case. Anyone having the same issue?

There have been some updates to Diff/Merge. Would you be willing to try the latest version of Diff/Merge and let me know if you still have the issue after that?

You might try creating and/or editing your Ruleset for SQL files and
set the following and save it.

[1] on the "Line Handling" page, check "Ignore/Fold Case when Matching Lines".
[2] on the "Content Handling" page, under "Default Context Guidelines",
turn off "Case is Important".
[3] on the "Equivalence Mode" page, turn on "Ignore/Fold Case".

Then in your File Window, under the "View Menu", turn on "Hide Unimportant Differences"
and see if that helps.
