The simplest way to run Atlantis is by clicking its shortcut on the Windows Desktop. But you can also use the "Run" dialog of Windows to launch Atlantis through a command-line.
The command-line can include various parameters and switches. A parameter in the command-line of Atlantis can be either a document filename that should be opened by Atlantis, or a switch (a string of characters preceded by a slash or a hyphen) that instructs Atlantis to perform some action.
The following table lists all the switches that can be used in the command-line of Atlantis. You can use either long versions of switches or their short counterparts.
|p||Instructs Atlantis to open the document specified in the command-line, print it, and shut down.||awp.exe /p MyDocument.rtf|
|NoPrintDialog||npd||Used in combination with the p switch. Instructs Atlantis to print the document from the command-line to the default printer "silently" (without displaying the "Print" dialog).||awp.exe /p /npd MyDocument.rtf|
|PrintTo||pt||Instructs Atlantis to print the document from the command-line through the specified printer "silently" (without displaying the "Print" dialog).||awp.exe /pt MyDocument.rtf "hp deskjet 656c series"|
|DontCreateNewDoc||n||Atlantis will not automatically create a new document at startup regardless of its current settings.||awp.exe /n|
|Restored||r||The window of Atlantis will be initially in "non-maximized" ("restored") state regardless of the recent state of this window.||awp.exe -r|
|Maximized||m||The window of Atlantis will be initially in the maximized state regardless of the recent state of this window.||awp.exe -m|
|FullScreen||fs||Atlantis automatically activates the Full Screen mode.||awp.exe -fs|
|DontLoadSettings||dls||Atlantis does not retrieve its settings either from the registry or an INI file. The default "factory" settings are used.||awp.exe -dls
(use this command-line to switch to the "factory" settings).
|LoadSettingsFromIni||lsi||Atlantis will try to retrieve its settings from the My Documents\Atlantis\Atlantis.ini file.||awp.exe -lsi|
|LoadSettingsFromReg||lsr||Atlantis will retrieve its settings from the Windows Registry. The Atlantis.ini file is ignored even if you launch Atlantis from a memory flash drive.||awp.exe -lsr|
|DontSaveSettings||dss||Atlantis doesn't save settings on close.||awp.exe -dss|
|SaveSettingsToIni||ssi||Atlantis saves settings to the My Documents\Atlantis\Atlantis.ini file on close.||awp.exe -ssi|
|SaveSettingsToReg||ssr||Atlantis saves settings to the Windows Registry on close.||awp.exe -ssr|
|SettingsFileName||sfn||Instructs Atlantis to use a specified INI file (the name of this INI file should immediately follow this switch). Should be used in combination with the lsi switch.||awp.exe /lsi /ssi /sfn "D:\My Settings.ini"
(Atlantis will both read and write settings from/to the "D:\My Settings.ini" file)
Note that the filenames in the command-line that include spaces, should be enclosed within double quotes.
For example, to instruct Atlantis to open the document filename My Document.rtf, you should use the following command-line:
awp.exe "My Document.rtf"
