DFH Hide/Show identical lines 2017-12-15 09:54:59
Of course many text files such as computer programs have highly structured content, so it's important to see file differences in context.

However, not all text files are like that.

Some files (e.g.) [counted] lists of words have content in which one line does not depend on the preceding or succeeding lines for its significance or purpose.

For this reason it would be a definite benefit if the UI for Diffinity could enable the user to Hide/Show indentical lines when comparing two similar files.

This would enable the user to focus only on the different and/or unique lines in each file.

It would be advantageous in so many ways.

Please review my suggestion and comment.

I can see the usefulness of this, it would require some work though. I guess all equal lines should not be shown but still saved if the user edits the shown lines. We would need to save those lines somewhere else then instead of in the text components and handle saving when in this mode.
