Enhanced DWG Compare in Autodesk AutoCAD 2020

Compare previous and current drawings in real-time and enhance your understanding of both.


The DWG Compare feature introduced in the last release has been improved based on your feedback so that you can compare and make changes in real-time.

Now when you select the drawing you have to compare to the current drawing, the differences are displayed right in the current drawing.

Using the new toolbar, you can quickly toggle the comparison on and off.

When you make changes to the current drawing, the differences are highlighted in real-time.

Select the objects from the compared drawing and import them into the current drawing in real-time.

Any objects you import will automatically turn gray, indicating the objects now exist in both drawings.

You can also export both drawings into a new snapshot drawing that combines the differences between both drawings.

The snapshot drawing is the same as the Drawing Compare in previous releases.

When you select Exit Compare, the differences are no longer displayed.
