Yeah, those confused me at first - I found the best info in Preferences, of all things. Type "appearance" in the filter, then click the item under "LPEX Editor" - you'll see the colors there - and you can make them what you want.

I think they are the same as the old CODE comparison function.

I find there is a pair of buttons on the tool bar to move to next and previous changes - it seems it does NOT show you things that are additions only - candidate for another RFE - unless we think it IS really a bug.

It might be of interest as to how I got there in Preferences - I figured that anything with color or font should be somewhere under appearance, so I did what I said here - typed "appearance" - ba-da-bing!

So that's how my mind works, when it does - hope that helps someone figure how to explore this monster called RDi.

Vern, tried this today (I had to show the toolbar that I have not displayed
for several years). It sure is bizarre! Can't make much sense of the red
and yellow blobs, but a couple weeks searching the help text ought to help
("compare" is a notoriously broad term).

It was not too much trouble, though, selecting a member like that -- at
least it had the library list of my connection available in there.

Try this - open the first member, then look for a triangle (delta in
Greek) on the toolbar - about halfway across - click on that and locate the
2nd member - yeah, fussy and not Ctrl-Shift-A - then press Enter - you'll
get the red-yellow stuff right next to each other.

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
mouse officianado).

I thought maybe there was a box where I could select two members a la

Or, another way to initiate that type of compare?
