SSLikeyESSS is a tool designed to compare two or more PDF files, each of which has different PDF output formats. It does this by comparing the underlying image content and then by finding all elements that are visible within both files, and then going through each element’s stylesheet to compare its properties.
The purpose of the tool is to allow you to make sure that you’re not losing any details in the PDF output, which could be useful if you’re having a lot of trouble in using PDF for some reason. You can also use the tool to determine what parts of your document are not correctly exporting correctly, and this can help you fix issues you may have in the future.
FFmpeg is used for the task and is used to convert the images from one file format to another. The tool is extremely effective at doing this, as it takes many different tasks into account, such as the dimensions of the image, whether it has transparency, and so on. The program will then apply any necessary transformations on the image data, and as a result the resulting file will look like it should be a valid PDF file.
As you may have guessed, the conversion process is done by FFmpeg, and this means you don’t need to be an expert in the field to run the tool. Anyone with basic knowledge of the computer, and a working Internet connection can use the tool, and it should take less than 10 minutes to do it.
After you’ve downloaded the tool and installed it, you should first run SSLikeyESSS and let it process the image file. This will work by converting the image content into a list of CSS classes, which will then be checked against the target file to see if they are missing or duplicated.
If any of the elements are found to be missing, then SSLikeyESSSS will display a warning message, letting you know that the file doesn’t match the expected output. You can then use the correction options to rectify the issue and then allow the file to be processed by the program.
In order to find out if any of the classes are duplicated, SSLikeyESSSS will display a list of possible replacements. If any of the instances of a class are matched to multiple files, then it will then display a warning message in case you want to remove that instance.
In the example: an instance of a font is different in each file. In the first instance, it will match to the ‘Helvetica’ class from one file and then match to the ‘Times New Roman’ class from another file.
This feature will display a list of duplicate classes and is great if you’re having a hard time trying to find out whether a class is present in multiple files. By viewing this list, you can be able to determine whether the program needs to be uninstalled and reinstalled, or if it is simply a case of duplicating the wrong file.
Once the tool has been run and cleared, you should then run SSLikeyESSSS and allow it to work on the remaining text. Once the text has been handled, you should then close the program.
It’s a good idea to test this program out on a wide range of documents before it gets too big, as this will allow you to see if it’s going to be a suitable solution for your specific needs. If you’re not able to find the exact same class in other files, it could be that there’s a missing file somewhere that is the right match for this style.
This method can also be used for duplicate fields, which can become quite tricky when dealing with lots of fields. SSLikeyESSS is a great little program and will allow you to quickly and efficiently check your images for common errors.
