I have two files - when I open them with diffMerge it says that there's 421 differences, I can't for the life of me figure out how to either export out only the differences OR export out the results with the color coding??

There isn't a way to accomplish what you want with the GUI client as far as I know. You might try using Diff from the command line. In our user manual, http://download-us.sourcegear.com/DiffM ... Manual.pdf, there is a section called Diffing to a File that you might find helpful. That section is in the last piece of chapter 9.

I'm not sure what exactly you're asking.

A "diffmerge --diff" should give you a file with just the changes. Just like gnu diff outputs.

Another idea would be to select the "Reference View" and click one
of the differences-only or differences-with-context buttons on the top
left of the tool bar and then select Print. That may generate more paper
than you want, though.
