    Also, you may not need multiple file formats if all of your files are PDF. If you could go into more detail on how you are using the program, and what you would like to ignore, I believe we could setup a single file format for *.PDF, and then use the session settings Importance tab to control what is compared and what is ignored. If you could include screenshots or sample files in your 2nd email, that would be great.

    Ok. I´m not changing anything in tools -> file formats, just checking if the selected filter has changed according to my session.

    So if filter "do" in file format is selected and I load the "fd" session, then the comparison will use the "fd" filter? (when I´ve saved the session according to your previous post of course :-)

    Folder comparison.

    I like to know how you do that. I´ve made several file format for the same pdf mask, cause in one document I need to ignore (this is just a thought example):

    "BCN\s+\w+-$"
    but that must not be ignored in another document.

    Did you ever get the first mail? The response indicate this ("thank you for the files and attachment")
    What kind of screenshots would you like?

    Kind regards

    Hello,

    I replied to your email. Your settings look ok; the key is to make sure to double check the Misc tab in the Session Settings when it appears to "not be working". The Misc tab must be setup for that specific session (a new session or different session will behave differently) and it controls which File Format will be used for your PDF files. If you hit this again, please send in a screenshot of the miscompare and of your Misc tab. It may be you are running into something different.
