is it possible to place 2 drawing side by side and have them synced? meaning when over I zoom or drag one drawing the other drawing will respond the same,

 

Thanks

Shay

Are you talking about 2 different drawings? You can have multiple instances of Autocad open, and position them side by side, (Refer to this Article), but you can only work in one drawing at a time, so even if you if you did have the two drawings open, you can't pan and zoom in one and have the other one actively panning and zooming at the same time.

Bluebeam has this feature and it works fantastic.

Our civil software allows for up to 3 views so a change in the vertical design is reflected in the cross sections and a 3d view all in real time. n

Not quite what your after.

To compare drawings I bring them both into an empty dwg placed on top of each other, and change every layer of each xref to a single (but different contrasting color in the layer manager)  then you can easily see the differences and change the draw order to see which if any has the most differences. So every layer in xref1 is red and every layer in xref2 is yellow

If you upgrade to AutoCAD 2019 it will compare two drawings and display differences between them.

 

 

BricsCAD can do this also, in v18.
