I'm keeping the exported VC 8.2.0 Settings XML files in my revision control and diff'ing between my various deployment environments when I'm ready to push selected changes from DEV to VAL or VAL to Production. I've got PrettyDiff integrated with Node.js and Beyond Compare in order to format the XML files to make it easier to compare them, but I notice that
1) Some of the exported files (such as Credentials.xml) have the XML in a minimized format, whereas others (such as Jobs.xml) have it formatted with indentation
2) At least some of the time, when a settings file is imported and then exported again, the nodes come out in the reverse order.

I wouldn't think that either of these formatting differences should make any differernce to the file's functionality in specifying VC settings, but I just wanted to ask to be sure: If I beautify the XML by adding EOL characters and white space or by re-ordering the nodes, and then import the reformatted file, will it affect VisualCron in any way?

Thanks,

Interesting as we are doing something similar at the moment although not comparing between versions yet (we are comparing 2 exported files from the same version)

I do not think it will affect this. VisualCron will read the files the same way.

Thank you, that's the answer I was hoping to get!
