Compare Documents in Smokeball

Smokeball provides support for document comparisons within a matter. This feature cannot be used to compare documents between separate matters. 

Follow these instructions to compare versions of the same document or two separate documents in a matter:

Compare Versions of the Same Document

  1. Select the document in your matter’s documents section.
  2. Right-click on the document and then select Properties.
  3. In the pop-up window, select the History tab. This will present a list with all past versions of the document.
  4. Select the version you wish to compare and then select the blue compare link.blobid0.png
  5. Use the checkboxes to select the other version you need for the comparison and then select the Compare button. 

Compare Two Separate Documents

  1. Select two Word files in your matter’s documents section.
  2. Right-click on one of the documents and then select Compare from the menu.
    • The documents will then be viewable in a side-by-side comparison in Microsoft Word.
  3. Note: You cannot compare other file types. This feature will not work for Excel files or .PDF files. blobid4.png
