WinMerge currently markups only lines that are
different (added, removed, changed).
When only a part within a line has changed, it is
often usefull to markup/highlight this "difference
region" of this line (in addition).

This feature is also supported by other DiffTools (,
but not by all).
I find this feature rather usefull.

    Also RFE [ 462829 ] Show "diff-region" within changed line.

    Yes, this would be useful feature. I'm not sure which is
    better:
    1) hilighting exact differences for whole file or
    2) hilighting exact differences for selected difference

    Also, there must be menu item and shortcut key for
    enabling/disabling hilighting. I want to enable this when I
    need it. Hilight color must be configurable.

    Doh. That comment is for RFE [ 740287 ] Additional colour
    to highlight difference exactly.

    This is fixed in 2.1 by patch "[ 763616 ] New menu item:
    Highlight line diff".
