Assume I compare two text files. Line 234 has changed.

I right click in the right (!) pane onto line 234 and want to see a context menu entry "copy to left".

But there is no such menu entry.

Furthermore the corresponding context menu entry label on the right side (!) is confusing.
It says "Replacing with This (default)"

WHAT is replaced? WHAT is THIS?

The much better context menu label would be "Copy (line) to right".

Could you change/add this in the next version?

There isn't a copy to left. You would return to the Open File Diff and click the Swap button to put the file to edit on the right.

The "this" it refers to should be highlighted and separated from other lines or sections by dotted lines.

Thank you.

However this is uncomfortable.

Could you provide a equal treatment of left and right side in next release?

I would appreciate a two-way adjustment from left-to-right AND right-to-left.

Thank you
Peter

I've added your vote to a feature request I currently had open.
