Is it possible to compare two blocks of text without having to save them into 2 files first? Ideally if I could launch DiffMerge and paste one block of text in the left frame and one in the right and hit compare that would greatly speed up some day to day activities. If it doesn't exist would you please add this to the feature request list? I'm using the stand alone DiffMerge program and it is the best free text file comparison program out there.

Thanks for all the good work!

This isn't possible in the current version. We do have feature request 15514 logged for this; I'll add your "vote."

The feature will be considered for a future release of SourceGear Diff/Merge.

Thanks for your feedback!

I would be greatly obliged if you could add my "vote" for this feature also, i keep 2 files left.txt and right.txt that I paste text into, but it's a bit tedious

I agree that this is the best DiffMerge tool I have used, this feature would just make it a little bit better!

Is there any chance that this has been acted upon? I would also love to see the ability to do a quick "paste and compare"
