You can adjust the appearance of the comparison view using the Compare Tools pane. When a document is opened for comparison, the Compare Tools pane is displayed.

When the comparison document is being displayed on top of the original document, the visibility of the overlay can be customized to suit your needs.

You can use the Change Compared Page section to change the page of the documents being compared. Select the Sync Page Navigation option to keep the compared document's page number synced with the original document. When this option is deselected, changing the page number for the main document also changes the page number of the comparison document, and vice-versa. When this option is not selected, you can use the options in the Change Compared Page section of the Compare Tools pane to change the page for the comparison document only, and the options in the Page section of the Engineering ribbon to change the page of the original document.

If the overlay is off-center, you can use the Overlay Position options to move the overlay around. Click on the arrow icons to move the overlay as desired. Click Recenter to return the overlay to its original position.

By default, clicking the arrow icons moves the overlay by a distance of one pixel. You can increase the distance the overlay is moved after each button click by using keyboard shortcuts. The following shortcuts are available:

  • Shift + Left-click: moves the overlay by 10 pixels

  • Ctrl + Left-click: moves the overlay by 20 pixels

  • Shift + Ctrl + Left-click: moves the overlay by 50 pixels

The Overlay Visibility section contains sliders which control the opacity of the analysis of the documents. When a slider is set to 100%, items of that color are completely opaque. When a slider is set to 0%, items of that color are completely transparent and cannot be seen on the document.

When Monochrome is selected from the Compare View drop-down list, the colors in the viewer indicate the following:

Items displayed in blue are exactly the same in both documents.
