How can I compare similar drawings by overlaying them?

I'm new to SW and I work with hundreds of similar drawings. I simply want to compare drawings by overlaying one drawing (with the white background transparent) above a second drawing.  I've searched for a function in SW but haven't found one. 

 

Very primitive methods include:

  1. Using a "transparent background" function in Microsoft Paint 
  2. Comparing printouts of drawings by holding them up to a window

 

I've considered making a temporary sheet format and using that as the second drawing layer.  (Would that work in an EPDM system?).

 

There must be a better way.

 

Any ideas?
