The steps for convertingare as follows:
1, Open your doc document with Microsoft Office Word.
2, Follow the menu path “File –> Print…” or use the keyboard shortcut “Ctrl + P” to start the print process in your MS Word application Window. Then a dialog box of “Print” will come out.
3, Choose “docPrint” in the dropdown list of “Name” and press “OK” button in the popup dialog box of “Print” as shown in the following snapshot. Then you will see an application window titled “docPrint” indicating that the docPrint Document Converter is launched.
4, Edit the print layout parameters provided in the “Option Settings” dialog and/or on the toolbar of the docPrint application interface as displayed in the coming screen snapshot. Press the button of “Save current image document” on the toolbar after editing the print layout parameters. Then the “Save As” dialog box pops up.
5, The “Save As” dialog is presented in the next snapshot as follow. In the dialog:
5.1. Set the output path in the combo box of “Save in”.
5.2. Edit the file name in the input box “File name” for saving the image.
5.3. Select “PNG File (*.PNG)” in the dropdown list of “Save as type”.
5.4. Choose the color depth in the “Color Depth” dropdown list (24-bit suggested for png).
5.5. Set the resolution of target image in the editable combo box of “Resolution” (at least 300 dpi strongly suggested for maintaining image quality).
5.6. Press “Save” button.
Then each page of the doc is saved into one single png image with name postfixed by ascending-sequence number. The following snapshot shows 14 newly converted png images from a 14-page doc document.
If you choose “EMF File (*.EMF)” or “WMF File (*.WMF)” in the dropdown list of “Save as type” at Step 5.3, the document will be converted from doc emf or to wmf.
EMF/WMF image formats have an advantage that is storing image in vector and supporting theoretically infinite zooming. The last snapshot presents an emf image that holds the image quality and clarity in multiplied size.
