Is it possible to implement a soft wrap of text in the internal SourceTree diff window, so no horizontal scrollbars will be displayed ? It is much easier to scroll up/down rather than left right.
It's possible, but actually I would find that more difficult to read, since the lines then become variable height. Possibly an option that could be added though.
Thanks Steve ! It will be VERY VERY helpful !
Also, this can be (or rather should be) an option in preferneces (for those who prefer to scroll left/right). As for a lines with variable height -- soft wrap can be represented with dots, like this:
Thanks again !
I would find this option extremely useful. As well as code, I use git for documents (written in LaTeX), in which (if the editor is using soft wrapping) sometimes an entire paragraph will be in a single line. It would make sense for lines to wrap in this case. Highlighting changed words within lines (like FileMerge) would also be really useful in this case.
+1 for adding an option, which would be much improving my workflow. I have the same scenario as Steven, using git through SourceTree for keeping LaTeX sources with soft wrapped paragraphs.
The more we embellish the feature, the longer it will take to implement.
Please just add an option to the context menu at the top with a checkmark for "wrap" and if it's checked, then wrap lines and push the line numbers down.
It is not useful but imperative for comparing prose in plain text. Paragraphs can be one single ultra-long line if one relies on the text editor to soft wrap lines (and why wouldn’t anyone), so no soft wrapping makes the diff tool useless.
Of course, for plain text prose, lines as a unit of comparison does not make sense at all, so it would be even more useful if, on top of soft line wrapping, there was the option to compare differences at word level, inline, like `git --color-words` or Diff, Match and Patch’s diff
I concur to others. It may seem like a burden for code but for prose, e.g. LaTeX documents it's a must, the diff is really completely useless without it.
Hi folks, While the full post is over on our blog I'd like to share the dark theme we've got planned for 2019 here directly as well to keep the discussion going. The ...
