Summary0000157: Allow more than one line in differ view at the bottom
DescriptionWhen you deal with large chunks of text that differ in files diff, the bottom part of the Window that shows the new and old strings is only one line. That makes it hard to compare when the changed string is very long.
Please consider allowing resizing of the bottom part of the UI to allow text to wrap in more than one lines if necessary.
Alternatively, you can also consider allowing Soft Wrap Text in the Left / Right side views when doing file diffs.
Steps To Reproduce1. Compare two text files, with large chunks of text and minor differences
2. Notice the bottom part of the window preview one selected difference
3. Try to resize that part of the UI to make more than one line of text visible.

You are right, with long lines the result is very ugly
