Hi Cedric,

i attached an example.
In the example we added a argument to a function,

Screenshot of our CompareTool:
moved prototypes.PNG           : Prototypes are moved in list
moved function block 1.PNG   : Blocked is removed at original position
moved function block 2.PNG   : Blocked is inserted at the end of the sourcecode

.\original\n_cryptoapi.sru                     Original before adding parameter
.\added parameter\n_cryptoapi.sru     Result after adding parameter

Hello Tobias, 
Could you please provide an example of how the code blocks are moved?
This can be an screenshot or a code example.

This will help reproducing your case and to pass it on as an enhancement request.

It's very hard to merge sourcefiles/resolve conflicts.
A lot of code blocks getting moved by modifying the prototype of a function (add/remove parameters for example).

It's great to work with GIT branches in PowerBuilder, but the merging is very time consuming right now.

Are there any plans to fix this issue in PB2019 R2?
