Auto fill in files names for Diff
« on: August 26, 2009, 10:28:49 pm »
DIFF Tool - Let it guess the files based on what I'm looking at. 

If I have exactly two tiled windows open in the editor, and I select "Diff" (Ctrl-=), there's a fair chance (for me, it seems that it's about 95% of the time) that the two files that I'm looking at are the ones I want to diff.  It would be nice if Slick took a "best guess" and used the two displayed files as defaults for the files to diff.  One open file?  Three?  Eleven?  Idunno...just pick something!  The Buffer List button is nice, but the list is unsorted, and I often have 40 or 50 files in the buffer list, making it difficult to find the ones I'm after.
