    Hi, I've found the "distinguish differences" feature doesn't always work when the differences come one cell after another e.g.

    A
    B
    C
    D
    D
    D
    E
    E
    E
    F
    G
    H
    H
    H

    It won't spot the differences in A B C and G in the example above. Lines will be inserted after D and E only.
