    Default Compare Two Drawings

    Summary: Ability to visually compare two drawings.

    Description: I would like to be able to visually compare 2 dwg files. I'm sure you used to be able to do this in Volo View.

    How Used: All too often users 'Save As' creating multiple copies of files. Without a document management system it can be difficult to decide on which is the current drawing. By being able to compare files it makes it easy to spot and track changes to multiple versions of the same file.

    Feature Affinity: Other

    Ed,
    Yes, but it doesn't compare dwg files, only dwf.

    It's also a feature of ACA2008 for subscription users, so I expect it will make it's way into vanilla Acad before too long.

    why not xref one into the other, use layer filters and selective freeze/thaw // on/off to control layers and then you can step through as many comparisons as you would like, in a fairly organized fashion?
