Toggling Orphan Rows in BeyondCompare 4

Recently, I was comparing two CSV files. I wasn't interested in orphan rows (rows that existed in one file but not the other). I only wanted to see what had changed in records that existed in both.

I found a few articles but they were all outdated. I eventually figured it out so I thought I would share it with you:

  1. Right click on the toolbar on top (bar with icons like Next Diff)
  2. Select Toggles

You should now see additional buttons on the toolbar that allow you to show/hide orphan rows on either side, among a few other things.

So apparently the bar that loads by default is the "Favorites" one. Counter-intuitive if you ask me.

Awesome product, nevertheless.
