I gave this a try and it did work for me, although it wasn't what I
expected.  What I got, was the diffs were interspersed and color-coded in
the file.  Deleted lines showed in Red, inserted lines in green (maybe
yellow I am color blind).

Ctrl-Shift-N and Ctrl-Shift-P took me to the Next and Previous change.

Hope this helps,

I have tried various methods to get to compare with no success.  The
in CODE 400 works fine, and your reference seems to be the method in CODE
When I open the file in LPEX (or both files in LPEX), when I select Compare
I get a 'Compare' selection dialog.  it asks me to select a member, and
there is a tree container starting at the Connection level.
If I open the tree to my member, select it, the dialog goes away, but there
are no compare results.
