  • Compare PDF text to Word text

    Hi:

    I am comparing a Word document to its PDF counterpart. But the text in the PDF are split into lines while DOC is in one long line. How do I compare them?

    Thanks a lot!

    Sorry, Beyond Compare can't compare across line breaks. This means:

    one
    two

    and

    one two

    will always show as a difference.

    You'll have to use Save As to save one of the files as .txt outside of Beyond Compare, then edit the line breaks so they match the other file before you can compare them.

      Hi Admin, Please take a closer look @AlfredBroadway reply, he has edited the quoted text and added an irrelevant link in it. I think he is trying to spam this thread.

          Sorry, i didn't notice your reply earlier. But you did the right thing. I don't understand why people spam forums. Forums are so informational and useful, people should not spam them.
