This has been brought up before and think there is a request as an RDI
enhancement. I think you can go out and vote for it, I know I did awhile
back. Until it is done correctly PDM 55 is the option I use and will
continue to use, because it is so slick :).

Regarding the "Compare With" feature, the Preference setting for that is
"General > Compare/Patch"...which does not support column settings, blank
spaces, case, etc.

Regarding the "Compare to a File" feature, the Preference setting for that
is "LPEX Editor > Compare"...which does support all of the above. However,
this "Compare" is strictly a merge, while the "Compare With" is a visual

Neither one is really usable for our shop. After reviewing the forums it
seems most people use a 3rd party plugin, or PDM 54 and 55. The concern
our development shop is the effect on the "change dates" of the source
lines, which we depend heavily upon for our customer alert process.

There is mention of a "Compare Merge", but this appears to be only
available with the RDz product? It basically is the same as the "Compare
With", but also allows selective line merging. This would be extremely
helpful if RDi had the same utility. How does the rest of the RDi
community feel?
