Special Context Menu Items For Directory Comparison Panes

  • Hide
    • Hide
      Hide the selected item(s) and the matching item(s) in the opposite pane from view. No recomparison is necessary - the items are hidden immediately. The hidden items are shown again upon recomparison.

    • Hide All But This/These
      Hide all items except for the selected item(s) and the matching item(s) in the opposite pane from view. The hidden items are shown again upon recomparison.
