Step 2: Type a command line

Type the following four items in order in the command prompt window and leave a space between each other: the directory of the executable file, the command for margin setting, the directory of the input file and the directory of the output file. Maybe you would like to take a look at the following pattern which includes the four items.

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

  • 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
  • RTF file is the input file.
  • PDF file is the output file.

The following is a good 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\*.rtf 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.
  • C:\in\*.rtf ---- the directory of the input files. The wildcard * represents all the input RTF files in the folder in on disk C. The file extension specifies RTF 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.
