Enhance Document diff view in ILM

Enhance Document diff view in ILM

It would be convenient to synchronize scrolling of both documents in ILM diff view.

I'd really like that.

 

The gesture could be as follows:

- as long as there is not actual selection of left or right side >> always scoll both side syncronously

- if a user selects left or right side (highligth a  node) >> scoll the selected side only

- to return to the "synced scrolling" the a "de-selection of a side" must happen:

a) add a new checkbox between the sides (labeled "sync scrolling")

b) enable a "de-selection gesture" on the nodes: if a highlighted node is cliecked again, the selection is cleared

I would really like that too. How it is done is less relevant. But just look to what people are already used to from other diff tools.

 

e.g. in the Notepadd++ plugin "Compare" it's just a button in the toolbar that enables/disables synchronized scrolling.

The suggestion from mrump could also work.

Another suggestion could be to scroll in between the compared documents to scroll them both.
