I found a solution!

In daily work it is often necessary to compare different projects or project versions with each other. You can compare projects offline/online or offline/offline.

  • In the case of an offline/online comparison one project is online in a CPU and the other project is offline on a data medium.
  • In the case of an offline/offline comparison both projects are on a data medium.

To make an offline/offline comparison you must first enable the Reference projects view (see Fig. 1).

Fig. 1

Now the Reference projects view is available.

You call the Compare function via the menu.

Then you can run the comparison between two locally located projects. For this the reference project must also be in the Compare editor offline.

This screen shows the result of the comparison.
