Page comparison

When comparing two pages, TopLeaf looks at sequences of text, rules and graphics within a page difference area defined in the Layout Editor.

Two pages are considered equal when they contain the same content in the page difference area, and each piece of content is at the same vertical and horizontal positions on both pages.

Graphics are considered to be equal if the filename parts (ie. excluding the folder path) of their paths are equal. The contents of the graphic files are not tested. One way to ensure that TopLeaf tracks changes within graphic images is to include some form of versioning information along with the reference to the graphic (for example, the name of the graphic could include the graphic version number).

Color is not considered when comparing text and rules.

Hyperlink information (jumps and targets) is ignored during comparison.
