Is it possible to have a diff between 2 .docx files in libreoffice?
i am not sure whether it works with docx but did you try the "compare
document" option under "edit" (Edit -> Compare Document).
I did it. But... well, when I speak about a comparison, I also speak
about a good way to immediately notice the differences. Take, for
example, the command-line tool diff, or graphical meld, winmerge (
useful when I have to use windows... ).
Even a one char change is obvious.
I just retried it, to be sure. The changes between the 2 documents
were... say, almost inexistent, and so minor ( and they named the
document v2 and v3... those people just changed the version number...
pfff... or maybe "yet another error" I guess. No comment. ) which is
probably why I did not noticed them when selecting the changes the first
time. But now at least I know how libreoffice show comparisons.
It may be the more effective for that kind of work ( working on
formated text ) , I do not know, but I think that this dialog box is not
very explicit*. But maybe it's only a question of habit from a
programmer point of view, and one which likes a lot old tools like
terminals and ncurses applications.
For example, a small text to explicitly explain what are the lines, or
a help button, tooltips, I do not know what. But something that even
dumb people could be able to notice. After this failure, I tried on the
web and in the doc but was not able to find anything anew ( probably a
bad choice of keywords ). I ended by decompressing the files to compare
those damned xml things by hand...
But thanks for the help anyway. Problem solved.
*: in my situation, a very minor difference ( "Version 2.0" became
"Version 3.0" ) in the documents, on the 1st page - so, no automatic
move to the change which would have gave me a hint about what to take a
look at - and using it for the 1st time made me not understanding at all
what were those 2 lines "insertion" and "removal".
