It is often difficult to see if changes have been added to new versions of your files.

With the version compare feature, you will be able to open two versions of the same file to have a side-by-side comparison view. You can then see exactly which changes have been made, all on one screen.

How to compare versions of your files

  1. Open the file you are going to work with.

  2. Click the Compare button on the top of the screen. By default, the system will open the two most recent versions.

  3. If you would like to choose another version to compare, you can choose it from the version menu on the top bar.

  4. To exit the compare versions mode, click the arrow on the upper left corner of your screen.

How to view comments when comparing versions

  1. Click the comments button on top of the version you want to open the comments bar for. The comments section will appear on a side of your screen depending on which version’s comments you want to see.

  2. You can collapse either or both sections by clicking the comments button again.

You can compare documents and images right now – but we'll be adding more file formats soon. To know which files are supported in each category, check out the Supported file formats article. We will keep you posted as we continue to add more file types to this feature!

Compare versions is available on our Professional and Enterprise plans. To upgrade your subscription plan, please follow the steps listed in the Change your subscription plan article.

If you have any additional questions or comments, please let us know by writing to support@filestage.io.
