Set paper size in Linux version of html2any application

I've downloaded the trial version for review. The command html2any -page-size A4 test.html test.pdf returns the following message "Result is failed. No output file is created". If I remove the "-page-size A4" option then everything works. Could you please explain what I'm doing wrong.

Hi,

Please find attached the HTML file that I was trying to convert (a very simple hello world example).

The file converts when the "-page-size A4" option is not specified, please see command line results below...

When the option is not specified...(including attached PDF result)

/tmp/html2any-cmd-linux/bin/html2any helloworld.html helloworld.pdf

helloworld.html==>helloworld.pdf
result=OK

When the option is specified...

/tmp/html2any-cmd-linux/bin/html2any -page-size A4 helloworld.html helloworld.pdf

Result is failed. No output file is created.

Thanks for your message, you can use "-page-width" and "-page-height" parameters to convert HTML file to special paper size, for example,

"-page-width 612pt -page-height 792pt" will create PDF file with Letter paper size,

html2any.exe -page-width 612pt -page-height 792pt http://www.verypdf.com E:\out.pdf

"-page-width 595pt -page-height 842pt" will create PDF file with A4 paper size,

html2any.exe -page-width 612pt -page-height 792pt http://www.verypdf.com E:\out.pdf

You can use the -page-width and -page-height options to html2any to specify a size with the same aspect ratio as the page. You'll probably still have to combine this with specifying a width and height on the body, but it's useful if you want to completely fill the output PDF with content.

For reference, the 'UnitReal' accepted by the -page-width and -page-height options accept floating point values with units:

(none) == mm
mm
cm == 10mm
m  == 1000mm
didot
inch
in == inch
pica
pc == pica
cicero
pixel
px == pixel
point
pt == point

But note that they must both be specified with the same unit.

e.g.,

html2any.exe -page-width 8.5in -page-height 11in http://www.verypdf.com E:\out.pdf

html2any.exe -page-width 297mm -page-height 420mm http://www.verypdf.com E:\out.pdf

More paper sizes can be found from following web page,

    Hi,

    I am looking for a shell tools to replace htmldoc.
    I am trying html2any but unlike in htmldoc (with tag), I can't add tags to make a page break to generate a new page in the pdf file.
    Can you tell me if it is possible?

    Best regards
