Two columns vs. Three columns[edit]

This keeps the core problem where two diverging edits must be merged. In those cases you must see the changes in both entries to be able to properly merge them. Now it is sort of half-way between two and three column edits, you chose one column to act as the third, but by doing so you loose change-highlighting. I would strongly suggest that the double column solution is replaced by a triple column solution, it is way more user friendly for the difficult cases. Now it is easy for those darn simple cases where one of the paragraphs can be replaced by the other, but it isn't those cases where the user need support by a tool, it is the hard cases where edits are intermingled. — Jeblad 13:05, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
