How Do I use the Tool "Compare Files"?

Hello All:

I am new to KE and am having an issue with the tool “Compare Files”. When I choose the two files and click compare, I get one file in a tab that is called Diff.dif. Am I missing something, wouldn’t the two files be side by side or something?

Thanks for any help or advice on the issue,


Hi Paul, the “compare files” functionality uses inline “diff” comparison rather than side-by-side, and it should appear in a dialog:


Hi Ervumlens:

thanks for the help with this. your example clears a lot up of what I am looking at.


That means nothing to me?? I can’t understand what is happening… What does all that gibberish mean?
