Hi,

My name is Brian Donahue and I am a support engineer with Red Gate
Software. I believe that triggers were supported in version 1.61 and up.
There is an option to ignore/script triggers in View->Options, and again
when you select a database object in the comparison window, there is an
option to show/hide triggers in the migration SQL.

Regards,
-Brian Donahue

    Matt,

    The comparison grid does not show differences in triggers as such.
    Different, missing, and additional triggers show up as differences in the
    table. You have to go into the details of the table to see how the triggers
    are different.

    Regards,
    Brian Donahue
