Compare Versions or Revisions with the Brava Markup Tool

You can load markups created against previous versions or revisions of a document and compare two revisions of the same file in the Brava Viewer if the Compare feature has been enabled by your administrator.

Documents can be overlayed or compared side-by-side for ease during your document review processes. For details on using the Brava Viewer toolbar, see Brava Viewer Toolbars.
  1. Navigate to the file you want to view, right-click, and select View and Markup.
    The file opens in the Brava Viewer.
  2. In the Revisions panel, under the Compare drop-down menu, select one of the following:
    • Compare Previous Revision - to compare the current revision to the previous revision
    • Compare with Revision # - to compare a specific revision from the drop-down list (if there are more than two revisions)
    • Compare Files - to compare two documents to identify the differences between them
    If you select one of the Revision options, the revision opens in the Viewer, adjacent to the original in Side-by-Side mode. If you select the Compare Files option, the Attachment Picker window appears, where you can enter search criteria for the document or version you want to compare to and click Search to locate the file for comparison.
  3. Once you have chosen to compare a revision or file, use the icons within the Brava Viewer Toolbars to compare the revisions or files.
    Restriction: When using the Compare toolbar, most of the functionality associated with Annotate, Review, Redact, Measure, and Publishing (except Save View as .JPG) will not be available for use.
