Step 2: Type a command line

The command line you are going to type should include the following items in order: the executable file, the command, the input file and the output file. Moreover, you should type the whole directories of the files rather than the bare file names in the command line. The following pattern illustrates what items should be included in the command line.

htmltools -margin <string> <EMF file> <PDF file>

  • The executable file ---- htmltools, the main executable file of VeryPDF HTML Converter Command Line
  • The command ----- -margin <string>, the command that can be used to set page margin to PDF file. The angle brackets are used to enclose essential elements. string here means character string. The parameter value following –margin can be divided into four types:
    • -margin 10 : Set margin to 10pt to left
    • -margin 10x10 : Set margin to 10pt to left,top
    • -margin 10x10x10 : Set margin to 10pt to left,top,right
    • -margin 10x10x10x10 : Set margin to 10pt to left,top,right,bottom
  • The input file ---- EMF file
  • The output file ---- PDF file

The following is a perfect example of command line. It consists of the four items mentioned above, and include the directories of the files.

D:\htmltools\htmltools.exe -margin 10x10x10x10 C:\in\*.emf D:\out\*.pdf

  • D:\htmltools\htmltools.exe ---- the directory of the executable file. It represents the executable file htmltools.exe located in the folder htmltools on disk D.
  • -margin 10x10x10x10 ---- the command that can be used to set margin to 10pt to left, top, right, bottom. The following is the comparison between the original EMF file and the result PDF file. As you can see in the later one, there is blank space round the image on the PDF page.

  • C:\in\*.emf ---- the directory of the input files. The wildcard * represents all the input EMF files in the folder in on disk C. The file extension specifies EMF as the input format.
  • D:\out\*.pdf ---- the directory of output files. Here, the file extension specifies PDF as the output format. It indicates that all the result files should be placed in the folder out on disk D.

If you like, you can replace the directories in the example above with the directories of the files in your computer first, then copy it and paste to the command prompt window.

Step 3: Press “Enter”

Press the key “Enter”. The computer will begin to convert EMF to PDF and leave a margin on each side without delay. Meanwhile, you can view the information of conversion displayed in the command prompt window. When you see “result=OK” in the command prompt, it means the computer has converted one of the files. In the command prompt below, you can see that at least seven files have been converted from EMF to PDF.
