Oops - my bad, thanks for correcting me. I always have automerge on so "just assumed" the matching logic was the same regardless of the setting. You know what they say about ass-u-me...

Sorry if I caused any offense, it certainly wasn't my intent - as you and I have debated this topic and the history in detail in other threads I just figured you would know where I was coming from. I was trying probably unsuccessfully to walk a balance between not getting into too much detail (having suggested to the OP to look at some other threads), but sympathising with what I took to be one of his points of dissatisfaction with the dialog. In a later response on this thread I clarified the scenario in which I find the dialog "least helpful" The matching logic which you did is great, it's just the handling of same format merges I would like some additions to.

Well to be honest in the last thread I discussed this with you my reading of the responses was that everyone was waiting for a new merge dialog. I have a number of suggestions/ideas for possible approaches and even some slightly better Python/Qt skills to be able to contribute. I figured there was no point in pursuing it further if there was no real interest in some "partial" solutions even if they do address the main issues I face. I completely understand your lack of motivation to be too involved given you no longer have a need to do bulk imports yourself
