Convert PDF to HTML


Step-by-step instruction: interface

To convert PDF file to HTML do the following:

  2. In a left-hand table select an appropriate folder.
  3. In a central panel select an appropriate PDF file or files with the help of a check box.
  4. Select target fromat - HTML.


  5. After you choose the target format (HTML) you will see a new window. Customize the path where the file will be located.

    There are two ways to customize the path:

    • Enter the path.
    • Choose the file from a folder tree by clicking 'Diskette' button.
    If you want to make changes in file destination press 'Full stop' button. The program will change the path to the default one. If you do not customize the path and do not give the name to the file the tool will set up the path and the name of the original PDF file.


  6. Click ‘Next’ on the bottom of the window or select ‘Render’ on the left-hand side of the window. Choose the items(text, shape, image).

    If you select, for example, shape only, text and images will not be included into the output html file.


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


  8. The destination folder will be open. Find the converted HTML files in in it.


Convert PDF to HTML via Command line

It is also allowed to convert PDF files to HTML ones using Command line. It helps to convert files from within other programs.

To do this enter the following code: PDFConverter.exe <source> <destination> -c htm ,


  • <source> is the path where the source PDF file is kept,
  • <destination> is the path where converted file should be located,

Note: If you have a path with spaces use quotation marks.

For example: PDFConverter.exe C:\Documents\PDF1.pdf C:\HTML\HTML1.html - c htm

The program will convert the file PDF1.pdf into HTML document HTML1.html and saving the converted file in the folder C:\HTML\
