Display

The controls on this page control how folder comparisons are displayed.

Show Changes columns

Check this option to turn on the changes column in folder comparison windows. The column is used to display the number of differences between files when performing thorough comparisons between files.

Show Last Modified columns

If checked, folder comparisons include columns showing the Last Modified timestamp for each file.

Show Size columns

If checked, folder comparisons include columns showing the size for each file.

Show line counts instead of block counts in change columns

Merge usually shows the number of blocks of changed, inserted, or removed lines in the Changes column. Check this option to show the total number of changed, inserted, and removed lines instead.

Display copy files window

Check this option if you want the Copy Files window to be displayed when copying files between folder trees. The window enables you to modify the path to which files and folders will be copied.

Prompt to replace files

Check this option if you wish to be warned before overwriting existing files when copying files between folder trees. If the option is checked, you will be prompted before overwriting an existing file. Otherwise, target files will be silently overwritten. Uncheck this option only with care. Other problems encountered when copying files, such as a read-only target file, will still cause a prompt to be displayed.

Show simple file/folder icons

If this option is checked, Merge will display stock file and folder icons in folder comparisons. If unchecked, the appropriate icon for each file will be used. Folder comparisons may operate slightly faster if this option is selected.
