The selection for "show only differences selection" is not remembered like most other settings are in the "compare contents" window

Steps to reproduce:
- select 2 files and compare them by content (the command cm_CompareFilesByContent)
- change "show only difference, with extra lines:" option to enabled
- change the lines value
- close the window
- compare the content again
- notice that the lines value was remembered

Current behavior:
- "show only difference, with extra lines:" is not enabled: value is not remembered

Required behavior:
- "show only difference, with extra lines:" is enabled: value is remembered

PS: I saw the same for the Binary option

This is intentional. People would complain that TC isn't showing the correct files. The edit mode is also disabled each time you start the compare tool, so you don't change a file by accident.

Hi, I would like having the checkbox "show only diff" always enabled, for all files, by default.
Is there a way to achieve this behavior?
Maybe an INI option?
Thanks.

No, currently not. I fear that people wouldn't remember that they set the option, and think that the files are damaged.
