Summary0000165: Please add ability to compare finder (color) labels
DescriptionFeature Request: I would like to be able to include finder (color) labels when I compare files and folders. If I select this option, and differences in the Finder Label for a file or a folder would show up as differences.
TagsNo tags attached.

The problem is how to distinguish label difference from any other difference.

Actually when 2 files don't match VisualDiffer uses the red color to 'communicate' to user 'these files are something different' and user can take a look at timestamp or size column or open a file differ window to determine the kind of difference.

If files differ only for finder label color how can I render it visually?

Use the same red color, but make it a preference item or compare parameter on whether the folder color is included. And default this to No. User should pick specifically to include folder color when that is desired.

Will ability to compare finder labels be added?

Yes I want to add Mavericks labels support, too

Just consider you can set more tags per object so the match should be "all or nothing"

Please don't stop supporting Snow Leopard, as you consider Mavericks.

Compare Finder labels (and 10.9 tags) is landed on v1.5.4, just to keep you informed

A screenshoot here

I will continue to support Snow Leopard as long as possible at least for another year
