      Description

      Try to show a diff for two binary files using "Tools" -> "Diff...".
      Creator will just display "Waiting for data..." even if both files are small (1 Kib).

      It would be nice if Creator could show differences between binary files. If this is not possible, Creator should at least inform the user about this fact instead of letting them wait forever.
