"The document body was too large to do a version comparison" - is this issue slated to be fixed?
This is a known limitation, and this functionality was put into place to stop Out Of Memory issues from happening when diff'ing very large documents.
For the short-term, I do not see this changing as to keep our system stable. However, if there is a big enough demand to have large documents to do a version compare, I would say we can revisit this issue then.
Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thanks!
I'll give a concrete example: A List of Tips and Tools for using Unicode in LabVIEW. I read this document for the first time early last year, and since then it's been revved 21 times. I would like to be able to spot new information if new revs are introduced, and that task is easy when performing a diff.
The PDF of that document is only 109kB, and the uncompressed text portion is around 20kB. This does not qualify as a "very large document" for conventional diff tools. What's the document size limit the current system can handle? What would constitute a large enough demand to revisit the issue, and how involved is the solution? This is a really cool feature that I would love to use, but it currently doesn't work on many interesting documents on the Communities.
The business and IT met recently and we decided to bump the limit up to 100k for now. Hopefully this allows you to do more / larger document diff'ing effectively.
Let me know if you run into any other issues. Thanks.
