Convert Office to PDF and set page size by command line

VeryPDF Document Converter (docPrint Pro) is designed to help users like those who want to use a single command line to convert Office to PDF and set page size. Document Converter includes four applications among which, docPrint Pro Command Line is the one that supports batch conversion from Office to PDF and option setting.

After you download VeryPDF Document Converter and install it on your computer, you can find docPrint Pro Command Line, the executable file named doc2pdf in the installation folder. This article will show you how to use docPrint Pro Command Line to convert Office to PDF and set page size by command line.

You should first open a command line interpreter. You know, unlike a GUI application, a command line application cannot be directly opened by double clicking its icon. Instead, you have to call a command line application from a command line interpreter like Command Prompt. Please do as follows to open Command Prompt:

  • Click Start.
  • Point to All Programs.
  • Point to Accessories.
  • Click Command Prompt.

Secondly, based on the usage of the executable file doc2pdf.exe, please type a command line and then press Enter.

Usage: doc2pdf [options] <-i Document Files> [-o Output]

As for the option, -f <paper size> is the one you need to set page size. You can either select standard paper size or define the paper by yourself. The following are some examples:

  • doc2pdf.exe -f 8 -i D:\*.xls -o E:\*.pdf—set standard page size when convert multiple XLS to PDF in a batch.
  • doc2pdf.exe -f "10x20in" -i D:\*.doc -o E:\*.pdf—define 10x20in as the page size when convert multiple DOC documents to PDF files in a batch.
  • doc2pdf.exe -f "20x30mm" -i D:\*.ppt -o E:\*.pdf—define 20x30mm as the page size when convert multiple PPT files to PDF files in a batch.
  • doc2pdf.exe -f "30x40pt" -i D:\*.docx -o E:\*.pdf—define 30x40pt as the page size when convert multiple DOCX documents to PDF files in a batch.

Please type a command line depending on your requirements and then press Enter.
