Overlay function in PCL Converter

Hi Support,

I just purchased your server product to create invoice pdfs using an invoice pdf template and a pcl file. I do this on the command line and I issue the following command:

pcltool.exe -template temp.pdf test.pcl test.pdf

This results in:

My invoice has designs on it so when I use the template feature, the words on the invoice are overlayed with the designs. Is there anyway that my pcl file can overlay the invoice pdf template or perhaps you have a better way of doing this?

Thank you,



Please add -templateatbottom parameter to try, this parameter will able to set template PDF page at bottom,

pcltool.exe -templateatbottom -template temp.pdf test.pcl test.pdf

Thank you!

I just testing this and it works. I didn’t see that command in your documentation, is this a new command (templateatbottom)?

Thank you,
-templateatbottom is not a new parameter, you can see all command line parameters when you run following command line in CMD window,

"C:\Program Files\VeryPDF PCL Converter v2.0\pcltool.exe"

Pcltool.exe has following parameters for “template”,

  -template <string>         : Overlay template PDF file on all pages
  -templatefirst <string>    : Overlay template PDF file on page #1
  -templatefollowing <string>: Overlay template PDF file on page #2,#3,...,#end
  -templateatbottom          : Set template PDF page at bottom
