    Compare documents leading to create portfolio prompt


      I am using Adobe Acrobat DC and would like to compare two documents. I choose Compare from the menu, select my two files, and click Compare. I then get this message:


      Compare Error.PNG


      I created a portfolio containing both documents, which is not eligible to be compared since it's only one document.


      I created two separate portfolios, each containing one document, and it tells me to extract the portfolio.


      I'm at a loss. I have compared documents many times before successfully and don't see what the issue is here. Any thoughts?

          I’m going to move this to the Acrobat PDF Workflow forum. You’ve posted in the non-technical Lounge.


          I think you can probably ignore this warning and proceed proceed with the comparison on your two original files.
