#5 Show/View/Print only the differences


Sometimes, is very useful to focus solely on differences.

    This would be a great enhancement to the Compare Plugin. An option like "show only differences" would do a great job.

    Came across this post while looking to see if the compare plug in could do this. Since it cannot, I too think this would be a helpful feature since I don't want to scroll through an entire file to validate the differences.

    Or at least a way to jump to the next difference.

      The current iteration of the plugin does let you navigate the differences.

    Please include my vote to add this feature! This plugin is very well thought-out, and implemented well. Being able to see the differences is great. Being able to optionally see ONLY the differences and being able to save those out to another file would really complete this plugin. Great work!

    Yes, this would be a very nice feature to have. Recently I had to compare lots of files with over half a million rows in them and having the ability to only show the differences would have been very useful indeed.
