Right click on the project -> Compare With -> Branch..
shows a lot of files, most of them with no change, not even in whitespace or svn properties. This drives compare view (differential view) unusable. You have to painstakingly manually find the real differences your colleagues made.

I guess it is due to different revision numbers. In some cases there is definitively a different.
Is there any option to ignore different revision numbers?
An option to concentrate on really different files in a differential view (compare view)?

Thank you

P.S.
SVNKit 1.3. Ignore whitespace disabled.

Hello,

It doesn't influence on compare.

If files don't have content changes they shouldn't appear in compare
results, probably the problem is that you have different end-of-line
characters. If it's possible please try make compare with svn command line
client and check results.

I use Subversive 1.0.0 with SVNKit 1.7.5 and have the same issue.
If I compare the trunk with a branch of one of our projects, I still see some files which doesn't have any changes.
If I use the svn command line client (1.6.9) in Cygwin, they show only a few of the files (only the ones which have changes).
Because I use Windows 7, I cannot try the Windows native svn connector.

Any Idea what's going wrong?

Thanks in advance for your help,
Christian

I also noticed this problem (same version of Subversive, same
connector). More precisely, the compare editor opened by Subversive is
showing the file in the structure view with the red icon (usually used
for conflicts), but when you double click on the files, the two-pane
editor shows that there are no differences.

I'm going to do a search on Bugzilla.

Mauro.
