|Comparing and Merging Documents / Files Comparison|
Selected files are opened in two side-by-side editors. A text perspective is used to offer a better view of the differences. You can also compare XML fragments by copying and pasting them into both sides of the panel, without selecting files. To compare XML fragments, if files are already opened you need to close them in order to paste the fragments into the panels.
You can edit the content in either side of the editor and the differences are refreshed when you save the modified document. If you save modified fragments, rather than a file, a dialog opens that allows you to save the changes as a new document.
Both editors provide a contextual menu that contains edit, merge, and navigation actions.
If the compared blocks of text are too large and you want to see the differences at a more fine-tuned level, you can choose options in the Compare menu to do a word level comparison or character level comparison.
