Hi I am using this Acrobat version 

Elaine23984245ir27_0-1649639180611.png

When I compare  2 PDF files, it picks up "-" and  ":" in the documents as addtions or deletions.  Also the change in font size get picked up resulting in a huge flase number of changes when there actually aren't that many.  Is there a way to turn off these font or formatting changes?  My work requires to send PDF to many different company for signatories.  Once I received the signed copies I have to check to ensure the PDF has not been amended apart from the signatory.  Another pain point is I have to reprint the received document in PDF as the compare feature does not allow me to do the compare after signatory with error message on the security.  I get a large number of false "admendments" as the feature will ofen missed to track the first 2 lines in the paragragh, highlight the balanace of the paragragh as changes apart from tracking the font size change and the : and - plus other punctuation marks.  Please help.  This feature is not working as intended!
