    Please be more specific about what you need to check about the PDF file? Layout? Colors? A table of values? An image? Size?

  • What do you need to test and how are your PDF files generated? Depending on the PDF structure the "best" answer could be anything from a comparison utility to the human eyeball.

What are you testing for?

Tools:

  • Typo's are easy, there are spell-checkers for that.
  • Regression is fairly easy as well, a good compare tool will reveal all changes between versions.
  • PDF validation has tooling as well.

In between:

  • Basic info like the correct version CAN be done by scripting but likely is faster manually.

Manual:

  • Layout.
  • Correctness and completeness of the information. A real review in fact. Here my 'tool' advice would be training.
