Comparison of Documents

Phiplastic Pictor is a free program that allows comparing a document and its copy quickly and easily. Phiplastic Match automates the alignment of the document and the copy, and Phiplastic Gold generates the list of differences in the documents. Documents are compared as images, so file format does not matter. To compare documents you are to scan them or print on a virtual printer. When comparing you can switch between the document and the copy and use special layers to facilitate the visual matching.

A document
A copy
Visual comparison: clearly visible shift of the text
Difference layer: even small mismatches can be easily seen
Conflicts layer: differences are even more noticeable
Automatically detected differences of documents

Automated documents comparison is especially useful when dealing with legal documents, texts in an unknown language, as well as specific types of documents such as musical score, drawings etc.
