DiffPDF is a Windows graphical user interface (GUI) application for comparing two PDF files. Diff-PDF shows pairs of pages from the two PDFs being compared with any differences highlighted. Comparisons can be made based on the text regardless of layout, or based on appearance (which accounts for fonts, colors, layout, diagrams, images, etc.)
Diff-PDF is useful for anyone who needs to compare PDF documents, reports, books, or labels—for example, archivists, engineers, journalists, packagers, publishers, researchers, software testers, and translators. Diff-PDF is used in a wide range of contexts, from book authors to banks, insurance companies, and Government.
The app is wrapped in a standard interface with a plain layout. Diff-PDF clearly does not excel in the visual department, but it’s simple to navigate. Opening two PDF files is done by using either the file browser or “drag and drop” functionality.
Differences between the two PDF items can be noticed by viewing their content, since they are highlighted in red, according to the comparison type of your choosing. In addition, you can zoom in and out, exclude margins from the comparison, view log details, as well as set up separate zones in the layout.
