Due to the recent updates and many folks wanting to sync their RM trees with Ancestry. Compare files could be of better use as an update to assist with this (which can be easier than drag and drop or merge features) if Compare Files had the ability to alphabetically go through the list and compare side by side instead of RM deciding what was a percentage of match (could do both) then it might be more useful in just sharing what you want with your new file instead of playing cleanup after a merge. For example in the Compare Files window if the left side has a match to the right side (maybe it did not match due to variation spelling) but they are located in different spots in each list, incorporate the ability to drag to a side by side position and then use the check boxes to share information, sources, media etc.
