I'm not sure how to describe this. In vimdiff I remember that if one of the buffers had added a line, the other buffer showed lines at that same vertical location to show where they were added. I found a picture that shows what I mean:


On the other hand, in ediff the space is not taken up on the left buffer, instead there's a single character highlighted in that buffer as shown below.

enter image description here

Above picture is cropped from this.

Perhaps I'll get used to this way of showing things, but in any case I'm curious if it's possible to configure ediff to show things like vimdiff does.

  • Not that I am aware of. I think you'll get used to it. ;-) – Drew Jul 31 '15 at 22:42
