Comparing PDF documents is essential in understanding their differences. It is however difficult to do this since most of the time, a PDF reader is required but not available. This challenge has been tackled by the inception of online PDF tools. In this article, we will look at the tools used to compare PDF files online.
As earlier discusses, there are a variety of tools used to compare two PDF files online. In this case we shall be looking at one of the tools known as PDF24 so as to get an understanding of how it works.
As is the norm with every invention, there exist some demerits. Some of the disadvantages that arise with comparing PDF files online are:
Wondershare PDFelement - PDF Editor is a PDF reader that enables users to create PDF files, edit the files, convert them to a format of their choice, add comments and reviews to the files as well as add security features such as passwords and digital signatures to the PDF documents.
Other than the mentioned functions, PDFelement can also be used to make comparisons between two or more PDF documents. To compare two or more PDF files, you can opt for either of the two methods available:
Opening two documents and comparing them in the application either vertically or horizontally. This is done in a few steps as laid out below.
The second method of comparing files is by opening multiple PDF files and resizing them then dragging the tabs of the other files to create other windows for each file. This is done in a few simple steps as illustrated below.
The first step to this process as mentioned earlier is opening the multiple PDF files. These files will be bundled into many tabs on one window. Drag these tabs to create separate windows for each tab then adjust the size of the windows as desired by dragging along the edges.
After you are done with arranging the multiple windows, drag the tabs of each of the opened files back to a single window one by one. This will result in all the opened files being displayed on a single window where you can carry out your comparison.
