How to convert HTML file to PDF file with page breaks in htmltools.exe Command Line software?

Hi,

I have a previous version of htmltools.exe that does not support page breaks. I understand that your new version does.

How does one cause a page break while converting HTML to PDF? Can I enter a special character in the HTML to cause the page to break there or is it by page length only?

(What I really want to do is break and have the first page be the correct height even if I break at the half page and continue on the next page - just like MS Word would do if I press CTRL-Break.)

Is there an upgrade price for the server version?

Thanks,
Customer

Thanks for your message, the new version of htmltools.exe does support page breaks properly, you can use following HTML code to break following contents to a new PDF page,

<div style="page-break-before:always;"></div>

You can use following sample HTML file for test purpose,

<p><font face="Verdana">Page test...</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana">Page test...</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana">Page test...</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana">Page test...</font></p>
<div style="page-break-before:always;"></div>
<p><b><font face="Verdana" color="#FF0000">Break page at here #1</font></b></p>
<p><font face="Verdana">Page test...</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana">Page test...</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana">Page test...</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana">Page test...</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana">Page test...</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana">Page test...</font></p>
<div style="page-break-before:always;"></div>
<p><b><font face="Verdana" color="#FF0000">Break page at here #2</font></b></p>
<p><font face="Verdana">Page test...</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana">Page test...</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana">Page test...</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana">Page test...</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana">Page test...</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana">Page test...</font></p>

Please put above HTML codes to a sample HTML file, then you can run following command line to convert this HTML file to a PDF file with page breaks properly,

htmltools.exe -webkit test-pagebreaks.htm test-pagebreaks.pdf

This is the screenshot of converted PDF file with page breaks,
