You have my sympathy. I recently upgraded (from a really, really, old version) and was disappointed with the 2-second delay on launching DIFF, old version was instant. Also, DIFF failed to highlight differences in some circumstances; it correctly detected files that had a difference, but then would not show those particular differences. So I too was disappointed, relative to my previous experience, but the whole of the rest of the editor is like night-and-day compared to the old one, and the time to search whole folder structures of files is significantly quicker (so much so that at times I don't believe it actually did it!)

Longshot: a fix is coming in HotFix for my problem, but as a workaround they asked me to increase the Wrap Line Length (File options : Load); I increased mine to the MAX value permitted . I had some really long lines in the files that I was trying to DIFF, but my interaction with COBOL was on 80 column punch-cards, so I'm doubting that you have mega-long-lines :)

I would also make sure that SOURCE DIFF is off (in DIFFzilla OPTIONS)

Perhaps try renaming the file extension and DIFF'ing, in case trying to DIFF that particular file-extension is triggering the crash.

I am not sure the wording "Open in new tab" makes it clearer vs just double-clicking it to open

I was basing it on what Chrome does.  Click a link to open it as normal, in current Tab/Window, or use RightClick which provides options including "Open XXX in new tab".

Installed v23 today and installed the hotfix, pulled up the COBOL listings that I was diffing in v22 before the update, few seconds of hour glass and then slickedit completely disappears without a word, poof.  Can diff other languages and random files.  Pop up a web request log and do a slickedit regex search and replace to wrap on an item I was looking for, poof slickedit disappears without a trace,  can do the same search with the perl regex and syntax.  I just don't have the time at the moment to invest in debugging slickedit's issues and I really can send my client's code or logs in anyway.  Anybody else seeing these issues or know of a log that describes what happened when slickedit slits it's wrists and disappears ?
Just to not be all negative, liking the where I am at in my code window on the right side.

That's a reasonable request, it not always obvious that a file opened with Search Results or References will close upon moving to next file if no modifications occur.  I am not sure the wording "Open in new tab" makes it clearer vs just double-clicking it to open, I'll ponder it.

I like the "Reuse existing TAB" because I frequently open lots of files, following a Search, but modify very few. If I set Open-in-new-TAB I then have to close lots of TABs.

However, sometimes I do want to "keep" a file TAB, once opened, rather than reuse it.

So if there was a way of explicitly indicating "Open in NEW tab" I think that would provide ultimate flexibility.

My suggestion (Sorry @Dan, hopefully clearer this time) would be to allow RightClick on Search File-list, and have an "open in new TAB" option.

An alternative would be to RightClick the TAB and choose "Pin" or somesuch, which prevented it being reused, and thus double-click on next file (in search file-list) would then open a new tab (and then reuse that TAB for any more file-open commands)

There is an option that controls that behavior, Tools > Options > Editing > Bookmarks > Automatically close visited files, defaults to On.  Turning it off will keep all files opened by Search Results and References.

I have the same question.  Example: A FIF search results in 3 files being found (A, B, C).  In the search window, I double-click on a line in file "A", SE opens a window and tab for A.  Now I go back to the search window and double-click on a line in file B. SE now REPLACES the tab and window for file A with one for file B. I would prefer that SE leave the tab for file A alone and opened a new tab for B.

How do I reconfigure that behavior?

I don't completely understand, but will Search>Last Find/Grep get you what you want?
