Meld

Flattened view

When viewing large folders, you may be interested in only a few files among the thousands in the folder itself. For this reason, Meld includes a flattened view of a folder; only files that have not been filtered out (e.g., by Version control state filtering) are shown, and the folder hierarchy is stripped away, with file paths shown in the Location column.

You can turn this flattened view on or off by unchecking the View ▸ Flatten menu item, or by clicking the corresponding Flatten button on the toolbar.
