The option that can generate grayscale images is -y, which does not require an argument. For instance, if you want to convert a PPT file, which is of a common Office file type, to a grayscale SVG image file, your command line will be similar to the following:
doc2pdf.exe -y -i C:\source.ppt -o D:\target.svg
- doc2pdf.exe—calls the executable file
- -y—generates grayscale files
- -i—stands for input, requiring the input path as its argument
- C:\source.ppt—input path
- -o—stands for output, requiring the output path as its argument
- D:\target.svg—outoput path
Please remember to press Enter after you type a command line. This is how you can convert Office to grayscale image files by command line.
