Browse the contents of files in a review

To view all the files and directories in a review, open a review and select the Changes tab. Changes to files and directories, and to lines and characters in files, are displayed with these colors:

File added.

File deleted.
Line and/or characters deleted.
Line and/or characters deleted.
File renamed.

In the sidebar, you can view and search a list of files in the review. Use the filter to hide reviewed content.

In the contents section, view the files and directories that have been added, modified, renamed, or deleted. Expand a file or directory entry to view its contents. Use the Show menu to control how the file contents are displayed.

  • Binary files are not displayed, but you can download them.

  • If a file is marked as binary but you know it is a text file, from the Show menu select As Text. In Dimensions CM, check the format and upload rules.

  • Lines that have been deleted, or where characters have been deleted, start with a - (minus) character.

  • To control how white space is displayed, from the Show menu select a white space option.
