I went to the help pages to see how to access the "compare documents" tool. It says to select Tools->Compare. However, my tools menu does not have that tool. On the help page there was a screenshot of the Tools screen (with all the tools icons). There were far more tools pictured there than what I have in my tools menu, including the Compare files tool. I don't understand why I don't have all the tools for Acrobat DC STD (2015)
PS - I am posting this to "Creating PDFs" simply because none of the choices had anything to do with my question, so I just picked the first one on the list. If someone can direct me to the appropriate sub group, I will move this post to that group.
It is available in Acrobat Pro DC.
It is also in the Adobe Acrobat DC version, but I also am not able to see it.
It's only available in the Pro version of the application (see the title of that link).
DC is like a release number (after 9,X,XI). You still need to know the difference between Standard and Pro subscriptions.
I don't know, but it's mentionned here: Plans and pricing: Compare plans | Adobe Acrobat DC

I joined the Acrobat pre-release program 10 years ago, for the Acrobat 8 pre-release.
Thats great JR Boulay.
Hope to hear some useful feedback from you soon.

Some bugs reported during Acrobat 8, Acrobat 9, Acrobat X and Acrobat XI pre-release are not yet fixed in DC.
Sometimes it's discouraging.
Sorry to hear that.
But still looking forward to your feedback on New Compare.
Adobe Acrobat DC
