This post by Tushar (that is very great) inspired me to share how do I compare PDFs
I do not store old revisions in DFT files but I do in PDF files.
Adobe acrobat have a great tool to compare PDFs but I don't own a license to use it.
The idea is to translate a PDF into an image and then do some image overlay and compare.
While digging the net on how to covert a PDF into an image by API I found on github that someone already done it:
I just wrote a GUI in VB more user friendly than the shell usage.
Due to a bug I do also copy the selected PDFs in a local temp folder prior to use it.
It also work nice with shaded views
Hope it helps guys like me who don't store old revisions in DFTs
Nice workflow Fiorini.
The results are very impressive.
Are you also sharing your program ?
