Why doesn't the compare function in Acrobat DC work properly?
I have a relatively simple report document that contains text and tables (no images). I edited the document source (It's a DITA xml document) and added a couple of paragraphs. Now I need to provide my customer with a redline type document highlighting the changes but the compare function in Acrobat DC just doesn't work properly.
Because I've added a couple of paragraphs in the middle of the document the oagination has changed and some of the table now split across pages at a differennt point. There is no difference in the table but Acrobat DC INSISTS on highlighting every change in pagination as a delete and an insert.
This is useless as my customer complains and it is very confusing. If instead I output the report as a Microsoft Word document and use Microsoft Word's comparison feature it's shows only the actual changes, I've bee wanting to use Acrobat's compare feature for months but every time I try it it just doesn't do a proper compare.
Thanks for reporting the issue.
I understand that you are getting lots of false differences when using compare files.
I have few questions which will help me look deep into the issue.
