Side by Side Comparison

PDF Studio has a Side by Side PDF Comparison tool that allows you to open two PDF documents in the same window next to each other to compare visually. This can be useful when comparing PDF documents that may have text or image revisions.

How to Compare Two Documents Side by Side:

  1. Open the initial or first document in PDF Studio. This will become Document A in the Side by Side comparison
  2. Go to Document Tab > Compare Side by Side... in the toolbar.
  3. Select the second document that you wish to compare with Document A. This will become Document B in the Side by Side comparison
  4. You will now see Document A (on the left) and Document B (on the right) opened side by side in the same PDF Studio window.
