A powerful application designed for tow-way file comparison and merging and which provides support for images, binary files and syntax highlighting
Araxis Merge is a powerful and flexible macOS application that provides the required tools to compare and synchronize two or three folders, text and office files, as well as image and binary files.
Folder, text and document comparison
Thanks to Araxis Merge, you easily compare and interactively synchronize folder trees, find, edit or delete changes between source, XML, HTML or other text file revisions. What is more, you can gain direct repository access and compare different versions of the same file.
Support for MS Office and OpenDocument files
From Araxis Merge’s main window you can easily open and compare text from Microsoft Word and Excel, OpenDocument, PDF and RTF files. On top of that, you can copy text from other applications and perform simple text comparisons.
The color coded side-by-side comparison system helps you pinpoint differences and similarities with ease. In addition, the linking lines between the documents make it even easier to view how the files are related.
User-definable merging process
Just by using your mouse you can select the parts of each file that you want to be added to the final merged version of the files. With the help of the in-place editor and undo capabilities offer your total control over the merged files while the Merge functions highlight the changes within lines.
Image and binary comparison
Moreover, you can use Araxis Merge to compare numerous image file formats and detect the pixels that have been modified. At the same time, the binary comparison helps you identify differences in data files at a byte level.
The Professional version of Araxis Merge add the advanced three-way visual file comparison and merging to the existing two-way visual file comparison. Furthermore, the Automatic Merging feature is capable to quickly even up the differences between files.
At the end of the comparison process you can easily generate and save comparison reports in HTML, XML, UNIX diff or HTML slideshow format.
What’s New in Araxis Merge Pro 2017.4937
- Merge is fully supported, optimized, and tested on macOS High Sierra
- Image zooming has been completely reworked
- The swap slider on image comparisons is only enabled if there are at least two files that will swap
- Vertical ruler markings (which separate images in multi-image files) are no longer shown in an image comparison panel when the image file contains only a single image
- File and folder history lists are no longer stored in saved Merge preference files or saved comparisons
- The preference to turn-off font smoothing for text in text comparisons has been documented
- Merge no longer crashes in certain circumstances when using auto-complete in the file/folder pathname entry fields
- Text and binary comparisons have been fixed to draw correctly on macOS High Sierra if the Merge application window is resized when an information message is displayed within a file panel and line-wrapping is enabled.
- When Merge is running on macOS High Sierra and no Merge windows are open, clicking the Merge dock icon opens a new default comparison
- Image comparisons now ignore embedded DPI metadata when sizing and displaying images. Previously, embedded metadata could lead to images being drawn at an inappropriate size.
- The background checkerboard for image comparisons no longer extends beyond the image at certain zoom factors
- Dragging and dropping an image on to the whitespace surrounding an image in an image comparison loads that image
- Clicking on the whitespace surrounding an image in an image comparison gives focus to that image’s panel
