Compare two revisions

Compare lets you view the differences between any two revisions of a given document. Compare is not available for image files.

Use Compare to see where the differences are between any two versions of a document in the repository. Compare can be useful when you want to confirm file content before reverting to an older revision.

This function is available from all DITA CMS views.
