Disable Filtered Gap – Scooter Forums

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/06/23

There is a short thread mentioning [WayBack] Disable Filtered Gap – Scooter Forums (Issues concerning Text Compare sessions.)

It is the feature that when you select “Diffs” or “Same” on the toolbar on menu in a “Text Compare” (or similar, like XML compare), you see only the differences (or equalities when you selected “Same”).

There also will be small plus signs (+) in the gutter with the hover text “Expand Filtered Gap” on it to expand that gap and show the equalities (or differences when you selected “Same”).

There are two problems that basically make this feature very hard to use, which both stem from the need to view context around a difference in order to understand the proper meaning of that difference:

  • you cannot expand or collaps the “Filtered Gap” by keyboard
  • the “Number of context lines” in the “Text editing” part of the “Options” is not adhered to

Too bad as this could have been such a useful feature.
