>>> I thought about it. It is quite hard question even it does not looks like.
I ment to force it to 50%, disabling the possibility to change it when in line-wrap-mode: To prevent strange diffs. But I guess this could be OK as well. But it will probably lead to more edge cases to fix along the way.
>> Another suggestion would be to just make the whole line-wrapped block
No. Let's say that I have a single long line that is being wrapped into five new lines. Today each of those five lines will be handled independently by TortoiseMerge when it comes to color coding. I would then suggest to color code all five lines as a whole, since they are part of the same line.
However: This would give less information than fixing at 50% and leaving the color coding as today...

Maybe we could have a user selectable minimum length requirement. Having a reasonable default would give good results most of the time, and for the other cases one could increase/decrease the minlength to get each actual change on a single line.

To me it seems like the in-line diff does an excellent job of analyzing the changes in a single line. It's just a matter of bringing that information into play when breaking long lines and I think we will get excellent readability of them as well.
