How to print PDF on one side via a command line?

VeryPDF PDFPrint Command Line is a very convenient software application you can use to print PDF files. It can support command line, and can run without Adobe environment. If you want to print PDF on one side via a command line, it’s worthwhile paying attention to the command -duplex <int>, which you can use to select duplex or double-sided printing for printers. The integral, int, enclosed by the angle bracket is the essential parameter. In fact, there are three parameters you can select: 1 : simplex; 2 : horizontal; and 3 : vertical.

The following part of this article will focus on the command –duplex 1, and introduce a method to print PDF on one side via a command line.

First, run the command prompt window. Please: click “Start”; > enter “cmd in the “Run” dialog box; > press “OK” to close the “Run” dialog box and open the command prompt window. You can also follow these four red arrows in the picture below to run the command prompt window.

Second, type a command line in the following pattern:

pdfprint.exe -duplex 1 <PDF Files>

The command line pattern illustrated above consists three parts: pdfprint.exe, which represents the executable file; the key command -duplex 1, within which, 1 stands for simplex or to print PDF on one side of a piece of paper; and <PDF Files>, which represents the PDF file you want to print.

To be more specific, you should type a command like the following one:

D:\pdfprint_cmd\pdfprint.exe -duplex 1 D:\top.pdf

  • The directory of the executable file, D:\pdfprint_cmd\pdfprint.exe, directs to the executable file that is placed in the folder pdfprint_cmd on disk D. If the folder that contains the executable file is not placed in the root folder on disk D, you can change the directory of it, depending on path you store it.
  • The command -duplex 1 indicates the computer to print PDF file on one side. Here the parameter 1 has special meaning, so don’t change it, if you want to print PDF on one side.
  • D:\top.pdf is the directory of the PDF file that is selected. It can be replaced by the directory of the PDF file you selected in your computer.

The last step you need to do is press the “Enter” key. The assessable printer device will begins to print PDF file on one side.
