  • pdfprint.exe represents the executable file of VeryPDF PDFPrint Command Line.
  •  -wtext <string> is the command for adding a watermark to a PDF file. The angle brackets <> are always used to mark essential contents and string refers to character string and it means that the text for watermark should be enclosed by a pair of quotes “”.

  •  -ws is the command to specify underlined as the font of the watermark. w stands for watermark, and s represents strikeout.
  •  D:\top.pdf is the directory of the input PDF file, which is stored in the root folder of disk D. You can replace it with the directory of the PDF file you want to print in your computer.
