Diff Doc is a software program that lets you visually compare files of different formats and mark any discovered differences.
The interface of the tool is quite easy-to-use and thus, does not require any previous experience in order to properly work with it. The main screen is split into two sections, so that you can easily import the documents for comparison. Moreover, the app displays shortcut buttons that enable you to easily gain access to the most used actions available.
The UI is highly customizable, seeing that the opened windows can be viewed in a cascade mode, tiled horizontally or vertically, different tool bars can be hidden or shown, and the size, style and color of the font can modified.
Furthermore, the tool supports multiple languages such as English, Chinese, Hungarian, German and French. It is compatible with a myriad of different documents to be imported such as DOC, XLS, PPT, PDF, RTF, TXT and HTML, and retains formatting attributes.
Diff Doc is able to create reports of documents you have chosen to compare, and they can be saved to the user’s hard drive as DOC, DOCX, HTML and TXT file formats.
When analyzing documents, there are a huge number of options you have to choose from, such as ignoring or not the case differences, empty lines and whitespace characters (Tabs, Spaces etc.), forcing a letter by letter comparison, making the program beep when the process is done, as well as color-coding all deletions, changes and additions done to the files.
All in all, Diff Doc proves to be a very handy tool that enables you to compare different documents, no matter what format they are. Moreover, the program is highly efficient, seeing that all differences are color coded and that the interface supports multiple languages and is easy-to-use.
