Description soldatov 2016-10-26 09:13:39 UTC
Our tools generates a lot of files with same names but different extensions. For example:

In Projects or Favorites tab I can select 2 files and call "Tools|Diff..." context menu item

Minor problem:
I see "file.cfg <-> file.cfg [Diff]" tab

Real problem:
If I select "Textual" tab I see:
# This patch file was generated by NetBeans IDE
# It uses platform neutral UTF-8 encoding and \n newlines.
--- a/file.cfg
+++ b/file.cfg

In this mode I confuse files.
