Highlight text differences - Compare text

Hello, everybody! I’m new at Coda :grinning:

Question: Is there a way in which I can compare text in Coda? For example, if I have three paragraphs on the left and three paragraphs on the right, is there a tool or formula that would allow me to see which are the differences between the two texts?

Similar to what this tool does: https://www.diffchecker.com/diff

I haven’t been able to find anything.

Thank you so much!

Hmm @luisa_isaza that’s a good question. I kind of depends on what output you’re looking for. One thing that comes to mind would be combining sequence(), nth(), left() and formulamap() to compare the two arrays to each other and see at which position the characters match or don’t? Its a bit too complicated for me to quickly scaffold for you but hopefully that gets you started :slight_smile:

Hey, Johg! Thank you for you answer! Seems to me that what I’m looking for is a bit more complex. I’m thinking about something like this:

I think this is a function that Coda doesn’t really have. However, I’m going to give your idea a try, because it might be helpful for something related with the same project! Thank you so much (:
