    Comparing PDFs: Limitations and Batch capability?

      My team has been using Acrobat Professional to gather metrics on added and deleted words between PDFs. The function within Acrobat to compare between versions targets what I need but I find that for larger file & page sizes it takes considerable time to process and even crashes in some cases. We have used this on laptops and in multi-processor server environments.

      Thus I have 2 questions, is there a limitation on what the algorithm can handle in terms of page and file size? Secondly, does the capability exist for a batch process to run through multiple compares of PDFs as opposed to loading one compare at a time?

      Any insight would help greatly!

      Many thanks,
