It would be useful to be able to ignore trailing
whitespace.

Perhaps leading whitespace as well...

    Do you mean trailing whitespace in a line ?
    Then in the menu Edit->Options, use "ignore whitespace
    change".

    I kinda agree with this RFE. Yes, there is whitespace
    ignoring. But most of time I want to compare whitespaces
    too, because merging is easier then, identing changes are
    shown too. But trailing whitespaces add differences which
    are hard to spot without enabling View Whitespace.

    Trailing whitespaces are kind of special case. Maybe we
    could add option to strip trailing whitespaces when saving?

    Lowering priority. Nice to have if somebody implements this.

    This can be done with an unpacker plugin.

    If somebody cares enough to create one?
