and slide elements that have been modified, deleted, or inserted. Users
can initiate a comparison directly within the PowerPoint interface to
identify changes to text, images, speaker notes, fonts, the slide
master, and more.

differences in small presentations or those with 1000+ slides,

been made to a PowerPoint file I could not believe my ears," said Diane
Raabe, a Senior Associate at a top four accounting firm. "Workshare
Compare for PowerPoint is a dream come true."

"We know users
