XML Editor Compare Feature?

Postby Telecaster52 on Wed Apr 07, 2021 1:54 pm

Hello

Is there a way for GitHub to mark new pushed changes to a repository via the XML editor instead of the Text Editor? Does anyone know if there is a setting in Flare (or GitHub) that allows for the user to see what has changed via the XML editor in Github?

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for but try this. in Flare, right-click the topic you want to compare in the Content Explorer, and then select Source Control>Show Differences from the context menu. Flare opens a side-by-side comparison of the XML for file you're editing and the copy last saved to the source control.

Note that you need to associate the project with the source control in the Project tab in order to do this.

I hope that helps,

Thanks, Jeff!

More specifically, I was hoping that there was a settingin Flare that allows for us to see changes in GitHub in an XML editor View. GitHub currently shows the changes as they would appear in the XML editor. I'm not sure how to post a screenshot that I can show you in the forums.

Thanks!

To add a screenshot, use the Upload attachment tab that appears below the reply box. (I forget where it is regularly. :) )

OK. An example is in the screenshot below. This appears to be the Text Editor compare function in GitHub, not the XML editor.
