The diff's of .psf files are unreadable

Post by ALIENQuake » Tue Jun 25, 2019 5:17 am

Hi,

recently I wanted to use source control for my project. It's mainly psf and ps1 for all necessary functions.

But every time when I modify a form, there is a huge change of 'xml data' part inside file. Same thing when I replace one image with another.

The diff's are huge and it's very uncomfortable to see actual code changes. I'm aware that this is because of psf merge some code + data but is there no other solution to separate actual data/forms code from pure Powershell code?

Actually, spliting psf files into two:

- one with actual code
- one with xml data

would be easiest solution, what do you think?

At this time, all the content is located with the single file psf. Could you post a feature request here?
