Hi.

 

I am trying to use the document comparison tool in Acrobat, but I haven't been able to generate a compared document I can use easily.  I would really like the comparison to display like a comparison in MS Word:  I would like to see deleted text overstruck and in red, added text to be underlined and in blue, etc.  I am pretty sure that any comparison program would work like that, but I am a technologic dunderhead and can't figure it out.

I've moved this from the Using the Community forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the Acrobat forum so that proper help can be offered.

It does do that. Did you select the "Compare text only" box, though?
