3. Enter a command line

In order to rotate the page, and convert WMF to BMP, you should know that this command line should at least meet the following two conditions.

3.1. Condition 1:Include four factors

The factors that should be included in the command line are illustrated in the following pattern.

htmltools -rotate <int> <WMF file> <BMP file>

The four factors are:

  • the executable file ---- htmltools
  • the command ---- -rotate <int>, which can be used to rotate the page through the angle of 90,180, or 270 degree.( int refers to integer and the angle brackets <> are often used to mark the essential content.)
  • the input file ---- WMF file(s)
  • the output file ---- BMP file(s)

3.2. Condition 2: Use the directories to represent the files 

Take a close look at the following command line, you will find that the directories rather than only the file names appear in the command line. This is because computer will fail to recognize the file names if there are no directories to be referred to.

D:\htmltools\htmltools.exe –rotate 90 C:\in\*.wmf D:\out\*.bmp

  • D:\htmltools\htmltools.exe is the directory of the executable file. It indicates that the executable file htmltools.exe is in the folder htmltoolson disk D.
  • -rotate 90 is the command that can be used to rotate the page clockwise through the angle of 90 degree. The number 90 can be substituted by 180 or 270.
  • C:\in\*.wmf is the directory of the input files. The wildcard * represents all the input WMF files in the folder inon disk C.
  • D:\out\*.bmp is the directory of output files. In the example, BMP is specified as the output format. And the whole directory indicates that all the output files should be placed in the folder out on disk D.

3.3. Enter the command line

If you still don’t know how to enter a command line, you can replace the directories in the example above with the directory of the executable file, the input file and the output file in your computer. You can also change angle degree 90 in the command line if it is necessary.

4. Hit “Enter”
