Indication of type of difference
i.e if comparing a file then different icons or letters could be shown if the difference for a table contained
permission etc. changes.
And for a stored procedure
this means you could more quickly identify types of differences.
I am aware that you can use the project options to remove items but sometimes I need, for example, new permissions included in the update script but am not interested in knowing this but I am intrested in investigating table structure changes. These can be difficult to identify.
