Say I have 2 files:

echo 0.57431523434166198 > 1.txt
echo 0.57431523434166754 > 2.txt

If I compare them in p4merge, it will highlight whole fractional parts as different (see screenshot), whereas only the last three digits are different. Same thing happens if I compare "hello" vs "hAllo". Why? Is there any setting to highlight only the different characters?
