After a text inspection is run, the Inspection Panel appears. Differences between the Master and Sample files can be viewed and reviewed with the ability to assign levels and comments to each difference.
1. Navigating differences
Click the Previous or Next arrow to navigate between differences, each of which will be highlighted in both panels once selected.
2. Assigning levels
Once a difference is picked, click on the Level drop-down list to access and select from the pre-defined levels.
3. Assigning comments
Once a difference is picked, click on the Comment drop-down list to access and select from the pre-defined comments. To create a custom comment, simply type it in the text box.
4. Navigating between pages
Click the Previous Page or Next Page arrow when applicable to navigate between pages in the Master or Report panels.
5. Ignoring/ skipping differences
If you want to skip multiple occurrences of the same difference, navigate to the first occurrence of the difference, and click Ignore/ SkipAll.
Text Inspection automatically sets the level to "Ignore" and comment to "Reviewed" for all occurrences. As you navigate through the differences, Text Inspection skips over these duplicates.
6. Resync differences
Resync removes undesired differences from inspection results. It removes a difference from the Difference List if there is an identical match between the Master and Sample.
Note: You cannot undo it and will need to rerun the inspection to restore the results.
To resync, a difference, navigate to an undesired difference, click Select Text on the Master toolbar, and select the text in the Master panel.
Click Select Text on the Report toolbar and select the text there. Hit Resync. If the selected text is identical in the Master and Report panels, Text Inspection removes the difference from the Difference List and configures the numbering accordingly.
If the selection is not identical, Text Inspection does not remove it, but classifies it as a Change-type difference, regardless of its original classification.
Note: Resync does not apply to Font-type differences.
7. Accessing the Difference List
Click on the Difference List icon to maximize and view all differences at once.
The navigation functionalities are ported over to the Difference List. Any changes made in the Difference List will automatically carry over to the Inspection panel once closed.
Difference types are displayed to the left of the differences, as they appear in the Master and Sample panels. Clicking the Filter icon launches the Filter window, where users can uncheck different types that appear in the Difference List for a streamlined review process.
Levels and Comments can be assigned by clicking on the applicable drop-down list. Click the Previous or Next arrows to navigate between differences, each of which will display in the Inspection Panel.
Use Resync if any undesired difference is selected in the List. It will either be removed in case it's identical in both panels or reclassified as a Change-type difference if not.
Note: Hold Ctrl and/or Shift key to select multiple differences at once and assign the same level/comment.
8. Change Grid
The Change Grid appears above the Report panel and it displays character changes (highlighted in yellow) for the difference that is currently selected.
Hover over a specific character to see its Unicode value. Navigating through the inspection results will automatically refresh the Change Grid with new differences.
9. Show/Hide differences
Clicking Show differences displays thin, faint red boxes around all the differences found while keeping the selected difference in bold. To disable this view, click the now Hide differences.
