    Default File Compare Report to PDF

    Is there any way to generate a PDF format file compare report via a script or command line switch?

    Beyond Compare can't output directly to PDF. As a workaround, output the report to a printer and use a PDF Printer. A PDF printer is included with Windows 10. If you're using an older version of Windows, you might try something like Adobe Acrobat or PrimoPDF.

    Yes, scripts can output reports to printers.

    Example script to compare a pair of files and output result to printer:

    file-report layout:side-by-side options:ignore-unimportant,display-mismatches output-torinter c:\file1.txt c:\file2.txt

    To run the script, use the command line:
    "c:\program files (x86)\beyond compare 3\bcompare.exe" @c:\script.txt

    The @ character makes Beyond Compare run a file as a script instead of loading it for interactive comparison.

    For more on scripting, see the following help file topics:
