Using DiffMerge 4.2.1 on Mac OS 10.11.6.

When I ask for a folder diff, I see files marked as different, which when opened show the message that files are similar or equivalent. My Preferences are set for Exact Match or Ruleset-based File Equivalence Testing and the two buttons in the folder diff window (Show Equal and Show Equivalent Files) are pressed. Still, I am shown files as different which when opened are equal or equivalent.

I just want to see files which are different.

I never had that problem with the previous DiffMerge versions I was using.

Thanks for your help.

I think you've got your polarity reversed. Pressed buttons mean "Show Equivalent Files."
If I'm understanding you correctly, you want to hide them.
Try it with the buttons unpressed and see if that works.
