Comparer word wrap checkbox

Aidar | Last updated: Jun 28, 2018 07:12PM UTC

It would be really nice to have the word wrap feature in Comparer. Some lines/strings in requests or responses can be very long and it is inconvinient to look for differences since the user has to scroll both vertically and horizontally. I think a checkbox for toggling word wrap on and off would be great.

Hi Aidar, Thanks for the suggestion. I agree, long lines can be difficult to work with in Comparer. Implementing a word-wrap sounds like a good approach. We've got a story on our development plan to look at this. It will probably be some time until we look at Comparer, but when we do, we'll try to accomodate this.

Hi, Any update on this feature? Would love to see it implemented. I'm sure we're not the only ones waiting for this! Cheers

Hi Robel. We don't have any updates at this time. I've added your comments to the backlog ticket.

Any updates on the backlog ticket? Long lines really hampers comparer functionality. I still copy things out in to VSCode to compare, but would love to be able to use comparer so it doesn't disrupt my workflow ????
