View Full Version : Opening multiple files for side-by-side comparison

In Office 95 I could open two or more files in Word or in PowerPoint and view
them side-by-side. And I could drag text and objects from one to the other.
In PowerPoint I could drag slides from one presentation to the other. This
was VERY useful.

How can I do this in Office 2003?
(I am aware of the "Insert" feature, but that doesn't allow side-by-side
comparison.)

Thanks!

Hi Fred,

In Powerpoint 2003 if you have two presentations open you can use the Window=>Arrange all to see them side by side. In Word 2003
you can open two documents and use the Window=>Compare Side by Side choice. Word 2003 also has features on Tools=>Compare and Merge
that may be useful to you.

If two items is all you have open you can right click on the Windows taskbar and choose Tile Windows Vertically.
