Compare project revisions

Modified by Susan Riege on Jun 15, 2018

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.
