I am trying to convert a Rich Text document to PDF, overlay a Form and print. I have accomplished everything when converting a text document but Text2PDF doesn’t work with RTF files. Which application should I use for converting the RTF document to PDF retaining font and formatting characteristics?
Thanks for your great technical support!
I forgot – I am using command line interface. (Important!)
Please download DOC to Any Converter from following page to try, DOC to Any Converter can convert RTF files to PDF files from command line,
That worked, thank you.
However, in addition to the evaluation warning I also got an error message : "ERROR: connection failed. Please make sure OpenOffice.org is running and listening on port 8100". What does this mean?
Also the conversion of a rather simple document took almost 40 seconds. Is that normal?
Here is the command string I used: ( "C:\Documents and Settings\Paul\My Documents\Advantasoft\doc2any_cmd\doc2any.exe" c:\temp\doc1.rtf C:\temp\doc1.pdf )

Doc2any.exe will try to use OpenOffice to convert your RTF file to PDF file, if your system hasn't OpenOffice installed, you can simple ignore this warning message.

This is normal, because doc2any.exe is need some time to render RTF file and print it to virtual printer to create the PDF file, these steps are all need some time, so this time is normal.
Also, when you convert RTF file to PDF file at first time, doc2any.exe will spend some time to install a virtual printer, this time will be saved when you convert RTF file to PDF file at second and following conversions.
