Maybe one day you will accept a hurry task from your boss to convertformat file and rotate the page clockwise by 180°.It will be a difficult task if you have never done things like this before.You don’t know where to start,how to do and what to use.When you look at the word “rotate”,you may think about using the graphic editing software you have ever used because the software can rotate the image file by different angles at least three values--90°,180° and 270°.But there is a better idea which can fulfill the task in one process and you don’t need to convert first,then rotate the page in other software.You can take the software HTML Converter Command Line which supports rotating the page when converting emf to wmf perfectly.

How to rotate the page when converting emf to wmf?
You should run cmd.exe program which is the converting platform where you can input command line to convert emf to wmf.Just click start menu and click “run” in the menu to open “Run” dialog in which you should input “cmd” in “open” edit box and click “OK” button.You can also use the hot key “Windows” + “R” to do the same work.
In the popup cmd.exe dialog box,you should input command line which contains called program,parameter,source file and target file.The called program stands for the executable file called htmltools.exe in software HTML Converter Command Line installed in your computer.The parameter stands for the settings to change the source file or target file such as the page width,page height,page margin,resolution which need different DOS commands to control.The source file stands for the file which needs to be converted in your computer.The target file is the final file you want to get.Please see the following command line template in the conversion of emf to wmf as follow:
htmltools.exe –rotate<int> “input.emf” output.wmf
–rotate<int> is the DOS command to rotate the page,the value can be set as 90,180 and 270.For example,you need to rotate the by 180°,you can write the command as –rotate 180.When you run the conversion,the source file will rotate by 180° clockwise.Please see the example command line below,it will be a good interpretation to the command line above.
"C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Local Settings\Temp\htmltools\htmltools.exe" -rotate 180 "C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Desktop\New Folder\test0001.emf" test.wmf
"C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Local Settings\Temp\htmltools\htmltools.exe" is the path of called program.It seems that the path is too long to input,so you can drag the file you need into cmd.exe dialog box to save your time.
-rotate 180 is the rotation angle of the source file which has been mentioned above.
"C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Desktop\New Folder\test0001.emf" is the path of source file.
test.wmf is the name of target file,including file name and extension name.You can define the file name freely but the suffix should only be .wmf.
The last step is to find the target file in current directory where you run the whole conversion.So it is the location of the target file if you don’t specify the path for the target file in command line just like the example here.
