    FM File Comparison Utility -- Figure/Table Comparison Issue

    rombanks Level 1

      Hello fellows,

       

      The Framemaker file/book comparison utility seems to be a half-baked feature that is incapable of showing differences between 2 versions of a table/figure. Moreover, when a table is deleted, the CMP file does not clearly show that, unless you check the table anchor and see that it is conditionalized as Deleted. Unfortunately, the comparison utility has not been improved much in FM12.

       

      Has any of you tried extending the capabilities of the comparison utility through scripting? AFAIK, the Extendscript compare() function parameters do not allow improving too much, so alternative ways should be used.

       

      Thanks for your input in advance!
