The Compare project revisions dialog
The Compare project revisions dialog

Summary

The Compare project revisions dialog is used to compare two revisions of a PCB Fabrication Data Item, PCB Assembly Data Item, or PCB Project Design Item. This is a comparison of the generated file structure and a check of the files within that structure. Color-coded options are used to show files that have changed or not changed and those that have been added or removed.

Access

The dialog is accessed from the Explorer panel by selecting the two Item-Revisions that you want to compare then right-clicking and choosing Operations » Compare from the context menu.

Accessing released project Items and their revisions in the Explorer panel is only possible in panel's Classic View mode rather than Project View mode. To switch to this mode, click the  button at the top-right of the panel and choose Classic View from the associated menu when the folder of a project is selected in the Server Folders section of the panel.
