The text editor is a word processing utility where you enter and edit code or text.
Text or code editor consists of following parts.
The combo boxes at the top of the document area allow you to locate and select files for comparison.
The drop-down lists below the file location combo boxes display the name of the class and field in which the cursor is currently located and allow you to select and navigate to the required segment of code.
The area where code is displayed and edited.
Line numbers are displayed to the left of comparison panes.
Margin Indicator Bar
The gray area to the left of the editor. Margin indicators, such as bookmarks, are displayed there.
Vertical scrollbars can work either synchronously or independently. In the first case, Code Compare will match the scroll positions of the linked files. As one file is scrolled, the other file is scrolled as well. If you want to change a scrollbar behavior manually, just hold the SHIFT button. Please note, that this option doesn’t work in Visual Studio when the Word Wrap option is turned on.
The navigation maps on the outer sides of the comparison panes enable instant navigation through comparison results.
