Is it possible to have a diff between 2 .docx files in libreoffice? I
am not fond of office suites, but at my work they sent me an outdated
document describing what I have to do, and when I asked about some
"details" ( or errors, in fact ) in it, they sent me a different ( but
still with errors... ) version of the same document.
As has been suggested, try the Compare Document facility:
o Open the newer document.
o Go to Edit | Compare Document... .
o Browse to and insert the older document.
You can accept or reject the identified changes, or cancel the
dialogue if you wish merely to view them.
I trust this helps.
To be honest, I did found that feature without asking here. But the
changes were so minor* that I did not understood that this tool showed
them, since the results were not obvious at all and the visual changes
almost imperceptible to a user which is not used to GUIs.
Maybe one could make the hint more obvious, for example by replacing
the selected background color by one which jumps more to eyes, or by
showing some circles or something bigger around the change when it is
too small? The dialog box itself could be enhanced, by being more
explicit ( there are no bubble tooltips, no help button and no
description text for now ).
Those are just some ideas to enhance your tool. I do not mind a lot
about this, because I have to admit that I really do not like using
office suites, and my activities rarely imply me to edit some of them.
Problem solved anyway, thanks to have shared some time for this.
*: at the bottom of the first page ( so, no cursor's move, and
highlight in an area which does not jump to eyes ) the author changed a
'2' to make it a '3' ( version change...yes...sounds a bit like new
firefox version system :) ). Note that the quantity of changes in the
xml files were quite impressive, the kind of dirty results which makes
me more and more convinced that xml is over-used. And that it becomes
even worse when Microsoft tries to use it. Can you believe that with
that so minor change, compressed files have a delta size of 66 bytes?
One char => 66 bytes compressed! So inefficient... but not your fault,
ms is responsible for that.
