File Comparison

CADEditorX has the embedded function for comparing drawing revisions and identification of their differences. This function helps to learn quickly how the source drawing has been changed.The comparison results are displayed in the graphic form in which all found changes are marked  with a contrasting color. Only DWG and DXF formats can be compared.

How to compare two files?

In the ribbon tab Advanced it is necessary to select the command Compare files. Then the user selects files for comparison and specifies parameters according to which the comparison should be carried out.
