Consider showing minimised diff when changing mathematical function
Open, LowestPublic40 Story Points


Right now, when I change part of a math function, Visual Diff shows it as replacement of the previous node which I think works perfectly for small functions. However, when changing long mathematical equation I felt it would be easier to spot the exact change if we consider showing minimized diff instead, if it is possible :)

Here is an example of such case:

Visual Diff showing replacement of entire node:

Wikitext showing the exact change:
