Comparison tool within skin rule

My idea is regarding having a comparison tool within the skin rule which compares the properties of a component style/format with others.

The issue is that as a project grows, different developers create different instances of the component style - E.g.: Creating multiple types of Dynamic Layouts or Containers with different names. This is done to handle different UI requirements throughout the life-cycle of a project.

Often, same format configurations exist with a different name but there is no way for a developer to know unless the developer painfully combs through all existing formats and opening and comparing each format property.

This causes skin rules to bloat. PEGA has given an option to disable formats but it is difficult to do the same without having a view of where a format is being used and the impact assessment is often difficult.

An easier way would be if PEGA had a comparison tool which would alert a developer with a warning if another format already existed within the skin rule containing the same properties (margins/borders/padding etc.) as the one the developer is trying to create.

This will lead to re-use of existing formats without the burden of finding the same.
