How To Convert HTML to RTF


Step-by-step instruction: interface

To convert HTML file to RTF do the following:

  1. Launch Total HTML Converter.
  2. In a left-hand table choose a folder with HTML files from the file tree.
  3. Then choose an HTML file or files with the help of a check box in the central panel.
  4. In a right-hand table you may preview the file you have selected.


  5. After you select the target format (RTF) a new window will appear. Set up the destination path - the folder to place the output RTF file to. You may set up the path using two ways:

    • Type in the path.
    • Choose the file from a folder tree clicking 'Diskette' button.


    • If you want to make changes in file destination press 'Full stop' button. The converter will change the path to the default one.


      Note: If you do not customize the path and do not give the name to the file the program will set up the path and the name of the original HTML file.

    • If you want to convert a group of files the program will ask you to keep folder structure. Choose it if needed.


  6. Click 'Next' button or choose 'Render'. Select items for rendering (text, shape, image). If you choose, for example, images only, text and shapes will not be converted at all.


  7. Set the background image for your document:

    • Check the box 'Use background image' and click 'Folder' button.


    • 'My documents' folder will appear by default. Choose a proper image. Click 'Open' button.


  8. Set up the margin (top, bottom, left, right).


  9. Press 'Start conversion'. The program will show you all the properties you have already set up. If you need you can choose ‘Delete originals’ and ‘Open destination folder after converting’. Press ‘Start!’.


    Note: If you do not need to customize Document parameters the program will do it automatically with the following details:

    • Convert to - rtf;
    • Margin: Top - 0,5, Bottom - 0,5, Left - 0,5, Right - 0,5;
    • Paper Common, size A4, 8,3” x 11,7”, Portrait;
    • Render - text;
    • Background - no.

  10. After pressing 'Start!' the program will open the folder where the file was located. But in that case if you have checked ‘Open destination folder after converting’ parameter.

  11. If you would like to cancel conversion press ‘Cancel’.
