DFH Missing features! 2017-12-13 12:01:02
Just tried Diffinity for the first time after many years using WinMerge.

It handles UTF-8 non-Roman script better than WinMerge.
e.g. Devanagari (Hindi & Nepali, etc)

Why is there no view option for Right to Left scripts?
e.g. Biblical Hebrew, Urdu, Arabic.

And why is there no menu option to export a .diff file?
Surely any file compare tool worth its salt should have this feature?

It currently has inadequate support for Right to Left scripts.

i.e. The direction is almost OK, but the left alignment is not.

And for mixed text (e.g. Numbers and Hebrew), it doesn't correctly implement the bidirectional algorithm.
