      Greetings,


      Thank you for your question.


      You can split the code editor and open several files from different projects in a frame of one solution: to do this, please open the necesary files and use the option in the menu Window -> New Vertical Tab Group.

      However, there is no implemented option for their comparison directly in the IDE.


      If you installed Kdiff3 when installing the IDE (this is enabled by default, and if you didn't manually disabled this additional installation, Kdiff3 is present on your computer), you can use this application - please open it and select files for a comparison.


      I hope this would help.


      Regards,

      Kate

        I have Blaze R7 installed and this option is not available in the Window menu.

        Options available in window menu are:

        Minimize 

        Zoom

        Close All

          Hi Mark,


          Thank you for your post.


          The steps provided above are actually for the Windows version of the IDE.

          In The Welkin Suite Blaze you can find the splitting option in the menu View- > Editor Columns - it is enabled when you have 2 or more files opened in a code editor.


          At the same time, I want to draw your attention, that currently there is no ability to create several projects in a frame of one solution in the Mac version of the IDE - we will implement this soon.


          However, now you can compare two files from different organizations using the 'Deployment to another org' functionality - please use the Deep comparison command and after this, you can track differences in files from different orgs.


          Please let me know if you would have any additional questions.


          Regards,

          Kate

            Okay,

            Thanks Kate. So what you are saying is that there is no way currently in the Mac version to compare, say, "LeadTriggerHandler.cls" between a UAT project/org and a QA project/org?

            Comparing files within the same project I don't see being useful as I cannot imagine a scenario where one would have the same file twice in a project. And comparing files between Org and local Project file storage on disk, while useful in other scenarios, does not address the issue.

            At the moment I am using Sublime to compare the same files between Projects which is cumbersome. I do this about 20 times a day. It would be really useful to be able to do this within the IDE without needing external tools or plugins.

            Thanks

            Mark

              Hi Mark,


              Thank you for your post.


              Right now, you can open different projects (for example, a UAT project/org and a QA project/org) using different instances of TWS for Mac and in this case you can compare files from different orgs.  

              You can run the second (and more) instance of The Welkin Suite by running the command in the terminal: open -n -a "The Welkin Suite"

              We understand that this no the best solution for the required functionality, however, in this case, you will be able to work on several projects at the same time.


              As a side note, we are going to add an ability to create several projects in a frame of one solution within the nearest 2 months.


              If you would have any more questions - I'll be happy to answer them.


              Regards,

              Kate
