multi-file diff directory expansion
« on: October 02, 2020, 09:52:11 am »
I often work on projects with 1000s of source files in hundreds of directories, with build artifacts and other data and directories also in the directory tree.  I find multi-file diff very useful for code review and determining differences between different source trees that accumulate on my development machine.

Usually when using multi-file diff, I am interested in only the files in a few directories, and on a complicated project, it can become annoying having to collapse the directory tree to highlight the files that I am interested in, even more so when I merge a couple of changes across and then re-run the multi-file diff to check the result, and the directory tree gets expanded again.

What I would like is that Slickedit remembers which directories I have collapsed or expanded in a multi-file diff, so that the next diff is already focused on the part of the project that I am working on.

I'll file a feature request for this.  We have some code to save and restore this sort of thing.
