A picture is worth a thousand words. We have created some pdfs tutorials showing common tasks.

Overlay to see document differences in different colours

Post by Yorg1001 » Mon May 17, 2021 6:46 am

We are Architects and often need to compare two construction drawings to see differences,
A number of pdf software vendors support an overlay feature where differences in drawing A is in one colour and differences in drawing B is in another, with common content in black.
See the screenshot, for what I mean.
Both source documents are black, and as you can see the differences are now in different colours.
Can this be done in PDF Xchange, or how do I request this feature

Hello Yorg1001,

Thanks for your e-mail and enquiry!
We do not have such comparison features yet, but those are being worked on, and we will have them included in our products as soon as these are ready!

Kind regards,
Stefan

Hi, Many thanks for your reply.
I have about 30 licenses.
As Architects, this feature is very important.
As you can see, your competitor, PDF studio PRO, has this feature for years now.
Can you please be more specific if this is formally on your roadmap and when roughly expected to be implemented?

Hello Yorg1001,

It is actively being developed, but I do not have a specific date or build for which this will be ready at this point. As soon as I have any more specific information I will post it here!

Kind regards,
Stefan
