  • htmltools is the main executable file of VeryPDF HTML Converter Command Line.
  • -margin <string> is the command that can be used to set page margin to PDF file. The angle brackets are used to enclose essential elements. string here refers to 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
  • HTML file is the input file.

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

D:\htmltools\htmltools.exe -margin 20x20 C:\in\*.html 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 20x20 ---- the command that can be used to set margins to 20pt to left and top.
