Default "HIGHLIGHT" not to "DISAPPEAR"

Not sure if it's a new "SUGGESTION" or a help I need

Using the COMPARE is kinda confusing me - tried all combination and I still don't get what i wanted.

The only thing I'd like to see is an option "INVERT SELECTION" from the menu (just like file explorer)[list=1][*]Some files are * (i.e. filename)[*]Some files are *.* (i.e. filename.ext)[*]Some are files are (almost) duplicate. (i.e. test & test.txt) - so wants to get rid of test and keep test.txt (both are different sizes tho and I want to keep the biggest filesize safe).[*]Tried all combination in the compare option (even in the advance) .. works on some files but not on rest and some files gone hidden?[*]And finally, there are over 17,000 files that need checking. (gonna love cliparts )[/list=1]
Maybe someone can give me the correct combination or tell me if this need a new feature in the next version.

Btw, I'm not using "FTP" to/from "LOCAL" - just "Local Comparing" and comparing from 2 different folders (so it's around 12,000+ in one folder and the other 5,000 in another) and no, it would be too nasty if I copy those 5,000 files into the 12,000 files and overwrite/skip/etc..

Invert selection is located on the directory menu

The partial matching will match "fo" and "fobar", this isn't what you want so make sure it's not selected.

Ignore File Extension will match "test" and "test.zip"

When you say they've gone hidden, do you have "Select non-matches" checked? if not then the matches will be removed from the display.
