I am working with two huge Word documents and I want to see only the similarities between. I have been using the compare function under the review tab however it is showing a lot of deletions and insertions. I want to see only what was "moved," basically I want to know if stuff was the same between the two documents but I don't want to know anything else.
I used Draftable for Word. It is much, much better than the compare that's built into Word. There is a free trial.
The compare plugin for notepad++ is good, so I suppose you could copy just the unformatted text into text files and compare that way.
If you want to compare two Word files to check similarities between them I found this tool useful: https://www.prepostseo.com/plagiarism-comparison-search
It's free also you can compare your file with a simple plain text.
