thanks

@miniseb31,

If you Compare two Word documents containing two different images by using MS Word 2019 desktop application, it will then produce two Revisions in the final document (i.e. Insertions: 1 and Deletions: 1). Please see the sample documents:

Aspose.Words API mimics the same behavior. Please try running the following code:

Document doc1 = new Document("E:\\Temp\\Doc1.docx");
Document doc2 = new Document("E:\\Temp\\Doc2.docx");

Console.WriteLine("Before Revisions count = " + doc1.Revisions.Count);
doc1.Compare(doc2, "Awais", DateTime.Now);
Console.WriteLine("After Revisions count = " + doc1.Revisions.Count);

foreach (Revision rev in doc1.Revisions)
    Console.WriteLine(rev.RevisionType);

doc1.Save("E:\\Temp\\20.5-compared.docx");

Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

hello,
here is some tests comparison.zip (266.6 KB)

Doc1.docx and doc2.docx does not contain the same image, i tested the comparison with aspose, and with ms word version 16 and it does not give the same result.
