I am using Adobe Acrobat XI Version 11.0.20 and I am finding that the Compare Documents feature is not catching changes in the document layout. How can I get it to identify differences if the text shifts between two documents? As an example, document_1 (letter) had the address section in the wrong place. Document_2 is document_1 modified to shift the address a bit to the right so that it fits into the standard envelope window. When I Compare Documents (View > Compare Documents), the change is not flagged as something that changed between the two documents. Another example is I had two lines that were not lining up. After the fix to have them line up, the compare doesn't identify the text shift.
How can I get Acrobat to identify these sort of changes?
|Before||After||Compared (difference is not identified):|
I tried the various options available ("Reports, spreadsheets, magazine layouts", "Presentation decks, drawings or illustrations", "Scanned documents", "compare text only" checked and unchecked as well as "Include changes to:" (text, Images, Annotations, Formatting, Headers/Footers, Backgrounds).
In the past I worked with Adobe 6 PRO (I think) and it did a great job identifying these differences. Now that I got my company to get this version for me I feel it won't do what I need it to do. Suggestions are greatly appreciated.
