    s it possible to specify "ignore-unimportant" when doing a FOLDER-REPORT using command line script? I have two large directories to compare, and many of the files have unimportant differences. The command line report generated from the script doesn't seem to be able to specify to ignore the unimportant differences. This can be done in the UI by pressing the "Ignore Unimportant Differences" button. I would have assumed that the command line would support this to. Is there no way to accomplish this? The script I'm running is below. I can't seem to pass in an "ignore-unimportant" argument to this.

    Hello,

    Beyond Compare 2 does not support setting this flag, but you can save a blank Directory Viewer session with the option enabled, then in script, load the blank session, and then load in your folder pair:

    log verbose "c:\logs\bclog.txt"
    load "set unimportant differences session name"
    load "c:\folder1" "c:\folder2"
    expand all
    folder-report ....

    BC4 does support this flag as part of the criteria command:
    log verbose "c:\logs\bclog.txt"
    criteria timestamp rules-based ignore-unimportant
    load "c:\folder1" "c:\folder2"
    expand all
    folder-report ....
