This is being considered for WinMerge 2011.

As for the printing part, it is worth mentioning that 0.2011.001.415 beta features a scriptable print template which javascript coders might be able to tweak in such way that it excludes sequences of matching lines.

I think I got this working. See http://forums.winmerge.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=352&p=1392#p1392 for a screenshot.

We compare code changes in a large peer review group around a conference table. Printing just the changes would save reams of paper over printing the entire code with changes highlighted. Our company therefore uses another program for this meeting (that is not as good as WinMerge). So I have to use separate programs.

This functionality often comes with a "show X lines above and below the change", so the change can be seen in context. It seems like a small feature: when printing, parse down the file, and send to the printer only the lines around and including the change, then a space, then parse on....

Thanks for a great program, otherwise!!


thanks alot

I thought the role of a developer was to support the users (at least that's what I try to do).
I have 2 files of 366163 lines each and only 7904 with differences. It would DEFINITELY be easier to view only those lines.
The functionality is available in Beyond Compare and would be a very nice feature for WinMerge.
It would also be nice to generate reports based on the compares.

It's 2017 and you guys still haven't implemented this feature??

I am trying to find differences in sql dumps which have hundreds thousands of lines. Winmerge can't put me in the exact position that is highlighted.
A feature like "Only show differences" would greatly improve my winmerge experience.
