Sometimes it is necessary to compare entire lines instead of characters. There should be an option to switch to line comparison.

Example: Currently, if a line is "abc 123 def" in the first file and "abc 456 def" in the second, diffuse shows a single line where "123" was changed into "456". When the "compare by line" option is enabled, diffuse would instead show that the line "abc 123 def" was removed and a new line "abc 456 def" was inserted.
