Step 3: Type a command line

The first thing you should know is that the command line should consist of four items: the executable file, the command, the input file and the output file.

htmltools -rotate <int> <RTF file> <PDF file>

  • The executable file ---- htmltools. It is the main executable file of VeryPDF HTML Converter Command Line.
  • The command ---- -rotate <int>. int refers to integer and the angle brackets <> are often used to mark the essential content.
  • The input file ---- RTF file(s)
  • The output file ---- PDF file(s)

Second, you should use the directories rather than only their file names to represent the files. Under most conditions, computer will fail to recognize the bare file names in a command line if the directories are not provided.

For instance, the following is a command line which can be used to rotate the page when convert RTF to PDF in batch.

D:\htmltools\htmltools.exe -rotate 90 C:\in\*.rtf D:\out\*.pdf

  • D:\htmltools\htmltools.exe ---- the directory of the executable file. In the example, it displays that the executable file htmltools.exe is located in the folder htmltools on disk D.
  • -rotate 90 ---- the command that can be used to rotate the page clockwise through an angle of 90 degree. The number 90 can be substituted by 180 or 270.
  • C:\in\*.rtf ---- the directory of the input files. The wildcard * represents all the input RTF files in the folder in on disk C.
  • D:\out\*.pdf---- the directory of output files. The file extension specifies PDF as the output format. It indicates that all the result files must be saved in the PDF format and should be placed in the folder out on disk D.

You can replace all the directories of the files in the example with the directories of the files in your computer. Besides, the number which stands for the angle degree can also be changed to either 180 OR 270. If you want to convert only a single file, you can replace the wildcard * with the name of the file you want to convert.

Step 4: Hit “Enter”
