Display Bug

edited July 29, 2016 6:58AM in SQL Compare 11
I have made the following changes in a view:

1) I commented out a single line in the view definition, using this syntax:
/* first statement that I commented out */

2) Months later, I commented out a large block of lines, which began before the first statement and ended after it. The code looked like this:
/* Line 1 above original commented out line
Line 2 above original commented out line
.....
Line 30 above original commented out line
/* first statement that I commented out */
Line 1 after original commented out line
Line 2 after original commented out line
....
Line 9 after original commented out line */

In SQL Server management Studio, all the lines appear green, and none of them are active.
In SQL Compare, the 9 lines AFTER the original statement appear in black: they look as though they should be active, but thankfully, they are not.

Please can you investigate, as I think this is a bug that needs to be corrected.

I first noticed this with v11.4, but it persisted after I upgraded to v11.6.
P.S. I get exactly the same behaviour in SQL Server Source Control. I presume that this is because Source Control uses SQL Compare.
