What People Say
I use Draftable to double-check almost everything I send to clients. Comparisons makes it easy to see what my team has changed, without having to read the whole document again.
Draftable's also useful for giving feedback. Whenever I need to fix someone's work, I send them a comparison to show them what I changed. This helps my team produce documents that are closer to client-ready.

PDF (.pdf), Word (.doc, .docx, .docm, .rtf), PowerPoint (.ppt, .pptx, .pptm), and Excel (.xls, .xlsx, .xlsm, .csv) files can be compared.
How does comparing Excel spreadsheets work?
By default, changes in content that are visible when the spreadsheet is viewed or printed will be highlighted.

What changes does Draftable show?
