Orientation

PARAMETER ORNT
Purpose This parameter defines whether the output will be in landscape or portrait orientation.
Values -1: Calculate best fit
0: Landscape
1: Portrait
Example -ORNT 1
Alias -R n -LANDSCAPE: -R 0
-PORTRAIT: -R 1
Use With all graphic formats

Landscape

PARAMETER LANDSCAPE
Purpose This parameter forces the output to be in landscape (horizontal) orientation.
Example -landscape
Use With all graphic formats

Portrait

PARAMETER PORTRAIT
Purpose This parameter forces the output to be in portrait (vertical) orientation.
Example -portrait
Use With all graphic formats
Rotation
PARAMETER ROT
Purpose This parameter defines the rotation to be applied to PDF and HPGL drawings
Example -ROT=90
Alias -RO
Use With PDF and HPGL output formats

Save DWG

PARAMETER SAVEDWG
Purpose This parameter forces the converter to save the intermediate file created after the source file has been read. So, for instance, it would be a DWG version of a DGN file. The output dwg file name will be the normal output file name with the suffix “.dwg” appended. So, “test.dwg” converted to PDF would result in an intermediate file being created as “test.pdf.dwg”.
Example -SAVEDWG
Alias None
Use With all graphic formats

Units

PARAMETER UN
Purpose These parameters control the units defined in DWF drawings 
Values IN:  Inches
F:   Feet
Y:   Yards
MI:  Miles (also MILE)
MM: Millimeters
CM: Centimeters
M:    Meters (also MT, METER and METRE)
Note If only A or US is used, then Drawing Size Mode is ignored
Example -UN=IN
Alias  -INCH:
 -INCHES    -UN=IN
 -FOOT        -UN=F
 -FEET        -UN=F
 -YARD        -UN=Y
 -YARDS     -UN=Y
 -MILE  -UN=MI
 -MILES  -UN=MI
 -MM  -UN=MM
 -METER  -UN=M
 -METRE  -UN=M
 -METERS  -UN=M
 -METRES  -UN=M
