I do not have the compare documents tool

Hi,

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)

Thanks,

Joyce

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.

Why isn't that version requirement mentioned on the page explaining how to use the compare tool?

Compare two versions of a PDF file in Adobe Acrobat.

DC is like a release number (after 9,X,XI). You still need to know the difference between Standard and Pro subscriptions.

Mmmm…

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.
