Hi all, There was a discussion a while back on how to manage EXCEL content in git. This involved a simple trick of modifying the file extension from .xlsx to .zip and unpacking the file - resulting in a whole bunch of XML files. Git is happy with that part and the content can be managed - slightly.
Unfortunately, EXCEL stores its XML content in single lines. Git has no problem with that either, as far as managing the content, but the lines can be really long. However, after about 20K in size, while the config: alias.wdiff=diff --color-words The ability of git to report differences goes away - as in no output from git diff. This occurs on Windows and Linux under git 2.3.3 and git 2.3.0. I'm not sure whether this is a user error, a usage error, or an actual problem. I had originally raised this as a SourceTree problem figuring it might be there: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/SRCTREEWIN-3145 Any advice (preferably no teasing - :-) - I am considering smudging but would rather avoid that)?
