I can do it from a word doc in windows 7 but not from PDF – This is really annoying me!……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
Answer: According to your needs, maybe you can use VeryPDF PDFPrint Command Line. This software is Window applications which can be used to print PDF by command line and control the printing options. It can work in all the Window system both 32-bit and 64-bit. Meanwhile it can help you print a PDF in black and white/grayscale. In the following part, I will show you how to use this software.

Step 1. Download PDFPrint Command Line

  • As this is command line version software and there are small elements in it, we have compressed it to zip file. Once downloading finishes, please extract it  to some folder then you can check the elements in it.
  • When printing PDF, please use it in compliance with the usage and examples.

Step 2. print PDF to blank and white

  • When use this software, please make sure there is printer connected with your computer.
    Usage: pdfprint.exe [options] [Options] <PDF Files>
    Examples
  • When printing PDF to blank and white paper document, please refer to the following template.
    pdfprint.exe -color 1 C:\input.pdf
  • -color <int>  : this parameter is an order to specify color or monochrome to printer,
        1 : monochrome
        2 : color
    Please do not use those values in an opposite way. By value 1, you can print PDF to blank and white. By value 2, you can print PDF to colorful paper document.

  • When printing PDF file to blank and white in batch, you can either use wild character or write bat file. For example:
  • pdfprint.exe -color 1 -mergeprintjobs C:\*.pdf
    pdfprint.exe -color 2 -mergeprintjobs C:\test*.pdf
    -mergeprintjobs  : this parameter is an order to combine all print jobs into one print job

  • When you need to list printer in your system, please use the following command line.
  • pdfprint.exe –listprinter
    -listprinter:this parameter is an order to list printers in your system. If you need to list all the bins, please use parameter listbins  which will list bins/trays of a printer.

    As  there are two many parameters, I can not list all of them here. You’d better use it then you can know how powerful this software is. During the using, if you have any question, please contact us as soon as possible.
