Compare selected documents

This procedure lets you view the differences between any two documents of the same type. You cannot compare image files or snapshots.

Use this procedure when you want to compare two different documents of the same type. These documents do not need to be in the same cycle. You can, for example, compare two different documents in the same cycle; or you can compare versions of the same topic in different cycles.

The comparison must be made between documents in the same view.

  1. Select the first document, hold down CTRL, and click the second document.
  2. Right-click, then select Compare With > Compare with Each Other from the menu.
The two documents open beside each other in your configured compare tool with the differences indicated.
