Any asset that has been uploaded as a revision of a previous asset can be compared against any of the previous versions.
While reviewing an asset in the Online Approval Tool, click the Summary drop down list and click Compare.
Note: The compare option is available only if there is at least one earlier revision of the asset.
Click the Compare mode button to access Compare mode.
In Compare Mode, there are 3 panels displayed.
- The left panel shows the previous asset version
- The middle panel shows the current/revised asset version
- The right panel shows the differences between the two asset versions (Difference mode is the default view for the right panel but this can be changed to show Toggle mode)
In Difference view, any differences/conflicts are highlighted green. For this function to be useful, the asset would need to be saved with all positioning matching the previous asset.
Tip: Try zooming in on any differences in the second panel to increase visibility of differences in the third panel.

In this view, any differences/conflicts are highlighted green. For this function to be useful, the asset would need to be saved with all positioning matching the previous asset.
Toggle view will display both the previous asset version and the current asset version. Both of these will be displayed in the third pane, switching between previous and current in 1 second intervals.
