Sync Dirs, compare by content not supported (?) -> allow manual compare

Post by *DrShark » 2019-04-15, 18:47 UTC

Currently in Synchronize Directories after pressing Compare with "by content" option checked in some cases (come FS-plugins/archives) where comparison by content is not supported TC shows ? (question) mark in <=> (middle) column for files with a same name. However, even in this case it's possible to compare 2 such files under cursor using "Compare left & right    Ctrl+F3" context menu item.

Suggestions:
1. After comparing using Ctrl+F3, change ? mark in <=> column for files under cursor according to compare results.
2. Add also context menu option "Compare left & right (selected)" to compare by content files in selected lines of Sync Dirs tool, also changing ? mark after comparing for them.

The ? is shown when TC doesn't support the comparison within the sync tool, because it would have to download/unpack all the files just to compare them.
