Maybe you know Change-Pro® is the patented document comparison product that compares Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF files. It is the ideal tool for professionals who need a powerful, efficient and robust redlining solution. But did you know it could do more?
Have you ever found yourself in a situation in which you have two files with only a few changes and a full comparison of the files is overkill? Or maybe you are working on a spreadsheet in Excel and you have text from a document or a PowerPoint presentation that you want to compare to information in your spreadsheet? If so, the Change-Pro® clipboard comparison feature is perfect for you!
The clipboard comparison task pane enables comparison of content from any of the Microsoft Office applications, without the need to save the text to a file beforehand. The clipboard is available via a collapsible pane that appears within Office applications, enabling quick and easy comparison of these small elements of text or data.
Consider another scenario in which a collaborator sends you an email with text that he or she is suggesting as a replacement for a paragraph in your document. The clipboard comparison option enables the ability to add both paragraphs to the comparison clipboard and then compare them on the fly from within Microsoft Word or Outlook.
