Compare files - Filter doesn't work properly

Hello everybody. I use 2 programs for compare files (Winmerge for text documents, Vbindiff for binary files).
I set filter for both:

Winmerge filter: *.txt;*.doc;*.docx
Vbindiff filter: *


Freecommander only checks extension of first file. If I accidentally select 2 different file types to compare (e.g. file1.txt, file2.zip), freecommander will prefer winmerge comparison instead of Vbindiff. Unfortunately, the winmerge has problem with big files. It takes a time. Vbindiff works immediately. Therefore, it would be good if FreeCommander chose vbindiff when both files do not contain selected filters.

Can the Freecommander check extensions of both files?

Settings:

Winmerge filter: *.txt
Vbindiff filter: *

Freecommander only checks filter (extension) of first file:

If I select 1.txt and 2.zip it compares by winmerge
If I select 2.zip and 3.txt it compares by vbindiff


But the FreeCommander should choose compare tool with filter * if both files do not contain selected filter (e.g. *.txt)

Is there possibility that the FreeCommander will check filters (extensions) of both selected files?
