The Glance Bar

The Glance Bar gives a visual summary of the "shape" of the changes in the files. The bar is a scaled representation of the files.

  • Colored lines/blocks are drawn to indicate changes in the files; the coloring and the shape blocks reflect the color and shape of the actual changes.

  • Black bars are drawn on the sides of the glance bar to show the current scroll position of the files.

  • As the mouse moves over the Glance Bar, the corresponding line numbers from the files are shown in the Status Bar. A star * is used when the corresponding line is a Void.

  • You may click on the glance bar to scroll the file panels to that position.
