B6: Can't save turning off Source Diff under DIFFzilla
« on: October 17, 2014, 02:56:14 pm »
In the OS X version of beta 6, I am trying to turn off Source Diff and have SlickEdit save that choice by doing the following:

  • Open DIFFzilla
  • Click on Options
  • Turn off the Source Diff checkbox
  • Turn on other DIFFzilla options
  • Click on OK

When I re-open DIFFzilla after doing the steps above, Source Diff is still turned on and the other options I turned on are reset back to being off.

On the "Files" tab of the DIFFzilla dialog, click the "IF END()" button to turn off Source diff.

Unfortunately, the suggestion above did not work.

On the Files tab, I clicked on the IF() button (which BTW is very difficult to see / make out on my MacBook Pro 15 with a Retina display).
I then clicked on Options and saw that Source Diff was turned off.  I turned on three other options (expand tabs, ignore trailing spaces, do not compare newline chars) and then, clicked on OK.

When I restarted DIFFzilla, SourceDiff was turned back on by default and the three other options listed above were turned off.

No luck reproducing this so far. A video might help. Sometimes it's something subtle.

The link below will take you to a screen capture video that shows what I am seeing. Let me know if you need any more information.

I see it in the video, so far I can't reproduce it.

I think I found a workaround for this. On the Options tab in DIFFzilla, I deleted all of my recent sessions and all of my saved sessions. Saving DIFFzilla option changes in beta 6 is now working.
