    Default PDF Print (Cad Drawing) Compare

    From what I see that I cannot compare a PDF of a Cad Drawing in BC4. is there a OCR tool I can use for this, since changing file type is not always an option. Thank you in advance, Gary

    Beyond Compare can only compare the text contents of PDF files. It cannot compare images or formatting in PDF files.

    As a workaround, you can compare the PDF files as images in Beyond Compare's Picture Compare.

    Open the PDF file in Adobe Acrobat Reader.
    Right click on the CAD drawing image and select Copy Image.
    Run Beyond Compare.
    Select Session > New Session > Picture Compare.
    Left click on the left image pane, then File > Open Clipboard.
    Repeat in the right image pane for the second CAD PDF.
