how to compare filenames?

Of all the synching features, I am not able to make a simple comparison of which filenames exist in one and do not exist in another folder?

I can not compare them neither by content nor by date, so I am missing "by filenames" radio button in Ctrl+F9.

Or, am I missing something? SYNC SCROLLING is no help since I need to compare over 100 files.

unfortunatelly, searching for "compare filenames" gave no results (in 2x forum and here obviously can not)

Nikos, although the duplicate checker has the facility now, I also like the idea of having "filenames" radio button in CTRL+F9.

The other thread discusses a technique that can work, but still it is a round-about way; and probably not suitable for newbies.

When ranked on "straitforwardness",

1. "By filenames" radio button in CTRL+F9 (will give a one-shot comparison)
2. Duplicate checker (you have to ddrop the folders in a scrap pane first)
3. The "store selection+reuse it elsewhere" method.
