It´s designed to review different versions of PDF files easily, quickly and accurately (what is colloquially called performing a PDF diff):

Load PDF documents and select pages to compare and regions to exclude from comparison. Change comparison mode (text compare or image) and other configurations if you want to.

Kiwi compares the files and shows in the documents all the differences detected underlined and with revision marks. Navigate from one difference to the nex with a single click.

3. Print results:
