Multifile diff: Right-click exclusions
« on: February 10, 2022, 04:43:18 pm »
In MFDiff, at least when launched from Slickedit, add context menus for file-exclusion.

For example in ProcMon, right-click on a log entry and there are a variety of include/exclude options.

If I diff two folders and I find there are a bunch of *.txt files that I don't care about, I could simply right-click one of them and have options like:
Exclude: *.txt
Exclude: ThisFile.*
Exclude: ThisFile.txt
Exclude: C:\This\Entire\Path\
Exclude: C:\This\Entire\Path\*.txt
Exclude: C:\This\Entire\Path\ThisFile.*
Exclude: C:\This\Entire\Path\ThisFile.txt
Copy: ThisFile.txt
Copy: C:\This\Entire\Path\ThisFile.txt

Good idea.  You can hide the select a group of files and press Ctrl+H to hide them, or right click and choose Hide.  But an after the fact exclude for paths and wildcards would be good. Right now you can only do it beforehand in the setup dialog.
