Show history

When using the Show history that reflects the prior version next to the current version of the topic, please allow a user to:
a. synchronise the scrolling of the two versions, and
b. highlight text where where changes have been made.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the suggestions. Scrolling sync should be possible, but I'm not quite clear about the highlighting issue: Do you want to highlight the changes manually, or do you want them to be automatic? Automatic highlighting is very complex, at least as soon as you go beyond the most minor changes, and probably won't be coming soon.

Hi Tim,

Yes, an automatic highlight that reflects the difference between the current version and the select past version.

Sorry, but that won't be coming any time soon. This is one of those tasks that sounds simple but is actually horrifically complex to implement. :?
