    Issue Type: Bug  (was: Improvement)

> Intelligent source code diff comparison based on items in navigator needed
> --------------------------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: NETBEANS-420
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NETBEANS-420
>             Project: NetBeans
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: utilities - Diff
>            Reporter: codelite
>            Priority: Major
> The graphical diff comparison in git can only deal with small changes in 
> source code files now, if there is a big change in source code, the diff tool 
> can hardly find the corresponding code parts for comparison, instead it 
> focuses on irrelevant single line characters like \{ and } as same lines.
> I wish it could be improved by figuring out source code items(just as those 
> in the navigator) for two source code files/versions, and create a jump 
> button in the middle if the element(function or class) in the left file is 
> not in the nearby position of the right file, then the right file jumps to 
> position of the same function or class, resulting a meaningful comparison. 
> The difference graph lines should be drawn for each element no matter the 
> difference occurs in nearby positions naturally or after clicking the jump 
> button.
