3. - Using Beyond Compare for components - 2022-01-14

Maintaining changes in the neuron components (step, dendrites, somas, and axons) is a pain. For example: even though all the Step components are 90% the same each one must match updates to all the others. Using Beyond Compare from Scooters Software makes this much easer.

Adding a small addition to Beyond Compare makes it even easer. Heres how to have it ignore small but importances like the difference between 'Step1' and 'Step2':

  1. Load both files into left and right
  2. Click Rules button
  3. Select Importance tab
  4. click "+"
  5. In Text To Find enter 'Step\d'
  6. Check Regular Expression
  7. Ok
  8. Ok
  9. View > Ignore Unimportant Differences

The right side should show no differences between Step1 and Step2
