Command Line Parameters

AcroPlot Repro supports many of the command line switches when calling the AcroPlotRepro.exe directly that Ghostscript
does but not all of them.
*** We also support some of our own command line switches to provide increased functionality beyond Ghostscript and those
marked by the three asterisks ***.
Please note that if you do not specify all of the optional command line values we will use the values that were last
used in the AcroPlot Repro user interface. This can come in handy if you want to change say the Remove White
Space or the Dither Type in our interface without having to rewrite your batch file or programming calls. Or if you
always want to use specific values regardless of what was last used in the AcroPlot Repro program then please
pass in all of the Optional AcroPlot Repro Extended Command values.
-sOutputFile=filename where filename would be the full path and filename of the output file surrounded by quotation marks.
For the output filename you can also use a template like "C:\SomeDir\SomeFilename-%03d.tif" where the %03d will be
replaced with a 3 digit number based on the page that is being converted so 001 for page 1. Available templates are %01d,
%02d, %03d, %04d, %05d, %06d.
Please note that as of our 2011-11-30 release you must specify the %03d or equivalent parameter in preparation for
support of multipage image formats and so we are more compatible with Ghostscript. Otherwise for a multipage
PDF file you will get only the last page of the file. This does not pertain if you are specifying the -dFirstPage and -
dLastPage parameters also and they are both the same.
-rXXX where XXX is the output resolution. Examples -r72 would be 72 dpi, -r300 would be 300 dpi. We also support the
legacy X by Y resolution (-r72x72 or -r72x36) although both X and Y resolutions will be the first X value since we do not
support separate resolution values in AcroPlot Repro.
First Page to Convert (Optional)
-dFirstPage=X where X is the first page in the file to start converting
Last Page to Convert (Optional)
-dFirstPage=X where X is the last page in the file to stop converting at.
Quiet Operation (Optional)
-dQUIET - Suppresses warning and error messages. Note: In demo mode the splash screen will still be displayed.
Dither Type for Monochrome Formats (Optional AcroPlot Repro Extended Command)
Note: Versions prior to 2013-08-01 used a -pXX (Note there is no equal sign) to specify the dither type like -p1 or -
*** -dDitherType=XX where XX is the dither type value from below
*** -dDitherType=-1 - Pass back to Ghostscript and allow it to convert the file
*** -dDitherType=0 - Error Diffusion Pattern 1
*** -dDitherType=1 - Error Diffusion Pattern 2
*** -dDitherType=2 - Error Diffusion Pattern 3
*** -dDitherType=4 - Clustered Dithering (36 Shades)
