How to diff documents with Simul
Simul makes it easy to diff Microsoft Word documents. Here's how it works:
1. Upload the original document
Upload the original document from your computer or from cloud storage services like Sharepoint, OneDrive, Dropbox, Box or Google Drive.
2. Upload the comparison document
Upload the comparison document to Simul by selecting 'Import New Version' and then selecting the comparison document from your computer or cloud storage provider. This will create a new version of the document in Simul.
3. Review the differences
Simul will then show you what changed between the original version and the comparison version of the document.
4. Merge the two documents (optional)
If desired, you can then merge the two documents using Simul's merge functionality each authors changes are marked up as tracked changes in Word, allowing you to easily identify the differences, fix conflicts, and keep moving forward.
What is Simul?
More than just a comparison tool, Simul is a fully-featured version control and collaboration tool for Microsoft Word documents.
By using Simul, you get the following benefits:
Easily access the latest version
All collaborators can easily find and open the latest version of the document in 1 click.
Work on documents simultaneously
Multiple people can work on a document at the same time & Simul will automatically create separate ‘branches’ for each version so people aren’t overwriting each others work.
Easily see what changed
Easily compare different versions of a document - regardless of whether tracked changes were turned on or not - so you always know what changed, who changed it, and when.
Merge changes in 1 click
Merge versions in 1 click, and each authors changes are marked up as tracked changes in Word, allowing you to easily identify the differences.
See the full history of changes
Easily go back over a document and see what changed, when it changed and who changed it.
Easily revert to old versions
Easily revert to a previous version of the document, or take content from a previous version to add to the latest.
“Simul allows anyone on our team to access the latest version of a document instantly. It automatically creates versions, allows us to compare them to see what changed, and gives us a full version history of the document. It’s made writing research reports so much easier.”
