Edit -> Patch
Patch only works on files in local editor that are saved, ie it ignores files with leading * prefix in there name.
It is simplistic in it's approach, as it only works on one file at a time, If you need to work with files/projects look at one of our Plug-ins.
Patch tries to auto select the correct file in each list where relevant.
- the techie one liner Action, Against, Select File-1, Select File-2 if appropriate and then Process
