File Compare: scroll between changes (Windows 10)

In SmartGit, SmartSVN and SmartSynchronize you can easily scroll from change to change by using the mouse wheel over the area between the left and right file content views.

On Windows 10 you need to enable a system option to make this working:

  • open Windows’ Settings
  • select Devices
  • on the Mouse page select the option Scroll inactive windows when I hover over them

Crash on KDE

If SmartGit, SmartSVN or SmartSynchronize crashes for you on dialogs where (on other platforms) comboboxes are visible, please check whether the oxygen-gtk style is selected. It is reported to be extremely buggy and better should be replaced with either Adwaita or Clearlooks-Phenix:

  1.  Open the System Settings
    KDE: System Settings
  2. Select the Application Appearance
    kde2
  3. On the GTK+ Appearance page select, e.g. Adwaita
    kde3
