You can filter the changes by the type of change such as "Added", "Deleted" and "Modified".

Since version 8.2, "hide differences in appearance" option is available.
Checking this option will make only the modified models have mark on. So models with presentation change such as color changes and subtle re-location will not be detected as a difference.
