Compare plugin does not highlight differences inside lines after notepad++ is versioned 6.2.1 or latter.
It works well with notepad++ 6.2 or previous versions.
I went back to Notepad++ 6.2 to avoid this very annoying issue.
Thanks for the information.
any progress on that? Still broken in Notepad++ 6.4.5 :-(
Reporting that the problem went away for me when I updated from Notepad++ 6.4.3 to 6.4.5 (Compare version 18.104.22.168, Windows 8).
Updated to 6.4.5 as suggested but this just made it worse. All color formatting in the Left side comparison is lost, and text highlighting of variations is not present Win 7 X 64.
EDIT - Reverted to NP++ 6.2.3 and Compare 22.214.171.124 and the text highlighting is working again (still Win7x64).
This is STILL an issue with the latest NPP (v126.96.36.199) & Compare (1.5.6) versions. Please fix ASAP. This issue is causing me to look for alternative text editors though I much prefer NPP.
I just went to NPP 6.2.3 and Compare 1.5.6 like ChrisW above but still don't see highlighted diffs. Win7 btw
Actually, looks like most of the existing bugs are associated with the Compare plugin.
FYI I just noticed and installed NPP v6.8 which was released on 7/21/2015, the day I posted the comment above. I also installed Compare v188.8.131.52 downloaded from Sourceforge (it's not found via NPP Plugin Manager) to find that string diffs in a line are highlighted again. w00t!
Same problem (with 1.5.6), same solution: Install manually 184.108.40.206
Using N++ 6.8.6
Thank you for sharing the info!
Hi, I also had the same problem.
Apparently the problem is with the different versions os NPP Compare. The SF page ( sourceforge.net/projects/npp-compare/ ) shows the latest version being 220.127.116.11.
Plugin Manager from within Notepad++, which I pointing here ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/npp-plugins/ ) shows the latest version 1.5.6.
I've manually installed 18.104.22.168 and now it's working.
