If you have the Aldon plug in, you can right click the member, then select Team, Compare LM Versions. From there it will show you all the locations of existing copies of the member, and you can then select the two to compare. Of course the members need to be in Aldon to do this...
I know what you are saying about the Compare with Each Other scenario. It is very time consuming to come up with the lists you have to drill down to get to the members you want to compare, but once you get the two members it does a nice job of comparing them. If I could, I'd type in the location (like qsys.lib/production.lib/qrpglesrc.file/member.mbr) which would be way faster... :)

Subject: [WDSCI-L] Comparing source members
Anyone have any tips for comparing two source members easily?
I like the "Compare with... Each Other" kind of compare thing that shows the differences, but man selecting those two members in two great long lists of members from the Remote System View is tough on me (I'm not a real mouse officianado).
I thought maybe there was a box where I could select two members a la ctrl-shift-A.
Or, another way to initiate that type of compare?
