Hi there,

is there any function or add-inn to compare two or more PDF-docs highlighting the differences?

Thanks in advance.

Hello cajuba,

No such feature is available at the moment, but we might add it in the future. I do not have any time frames or estimates at the moment though!

Regards,
Stefan

Damned! Looks that we then have to buy Adobe Acrobat Pro... :(

This is a feature that lots of our users are asking for. Please implement it as fast as possible! :D

Regards,
Ralf

Hi Patrick,

We will continue to use PDFXChange Pro. PDF Editor is still my favorite tool! But we now have to additionally buy Adobe Acrobat. :roll:

Ralf

Hi ralf,

Glad to know we haven't lost you :D

Hopefully, we can implement this some day so that you can dump the unspeakable completely.

Cheers!

Is there something new about these feature? :?:
I also wish one of these functions, to scroll synchronous and compare two documents! :)
Best regards :D

Hello lutro gmbh,

Welcome to our forums, and thanks for your post.
I am afraid that such a feature is still not available, and I do not have any further news than what is already mentioned above.

Regards,
Stefan

As a sort of workaround you can do it fine also with some third party software. Above lev zilberman suggested "Diffpdf Portable". I use for this purpose WinMerge which also works well with pdf files: http://winmerge.org/?lang=en

Is there already any update or schedule when this feature (compare two PDF documents) will be implemented?

Hello Ralf,
Sorry to say that once again, no new information is available, I will ask the other about it in our next meeting and see where that takes us.

Hi Tobias,

It's still something that we're looking at, but it's a pretty large undertaking and it's not something that we can focus on at this time.

A simple way to compare TEXT PDFs is https://draftable.com/compare , so that is a non-issue.
However, it would be very much appreciated indeed to be able to compare differences in vector graphics.
More specifically, this is aimed at comparing differences in drawing versions.

There is currently no better way to compare drawing versions (and also general PDF pages as long as the page breaks haven't changed) than this naturally artificial intelligence grey matter hardware-accelerated way :)

Hello guys,

We are currently actively working on this one, though this won't be in the nearest release, but hopefully we'll manage to deliver this feature in the one that comes afterwards.

Cheers,
Alex

Hello Hans,

Not yet I am afraid - other than opening two files side by side and looking at them yourself trying to see if there are any differences.
We are still working on our comparison tool.

Regards,
Stefan
