Please see the specific steps about converting document of OpenOffice to bitmap. Here we take ODT document as the input file and BMP format bitmap image as the output file.
The first step is to open the MS-DOS command line prompt window. Two ways are given for your choice and you can choose any one of them.
(1) You can click “Start”—“Run” to open “Run” dialog box and input “cmd” in “Run” dialog box. Then please click on “OK” button.
(2) You can also use the hot key “Window”+ “R” combination on the keyboard to open “Run” dialog box.
The second step is to input the commands for converting OpenOffice to bitmap image in the command line window. For accurately input the commands, you can refer to the template shown below.
doc2pdf -i C:\input.odt -o C:\output.bmp
From the template we can the command is consisted of three parts—called program, source file and target file.
But in the command line you write, you need to input the path of each parameter in the command line window. For your better understanding the command line, there supplies a specific example.
"C:\Program Files\docPrint Pro v5.0\doc2pdf.exe" -i "C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Desktop\demo\openoffice\draw.odt" -o D:\see.bmp
In the command line you can see the path of each parameter is inputted in. You should remember to add a “-i” and “-o” before the input file path and output file path. If you don’t want to input the file path word by word, you can directly drag the file you need into the command line window and then please click “Enter” button on your keyboard to run the conversion from OpenOffice to bitmap.
Several seconds later, you will get the target file and you can check the target file with some kind of image viewing or processing program.
