WinMerge is too fine-grained - how to compare entire lines?

Postby jhg » Sat Jul 04, 2020 6:36 pm

Is there a way to prevent WinMerge from trying so hard to find similarities within lines? For example:

This is a comparison of lists of packages installed on two different Linux systems.

The partial "matches" highlighted are way too broad, what I want is a simple line difference. If the lines have any differences the entire line should be unmatched.

I have turned off "similar lines" in the options.
