How to batch print to PDF via command line interface

Once you have 2Printer installed, you can save all files in a folder to PDF by opening cmd.exe (or another command line interpreter) and executing this sample command:

2printer.exe -src “C:\Input\*.* -prn “Universal Document Converter”

Please make sure that PDF format is selected in Universal Document Converter settings in advance (Printing Preferences > File Format > PDF document).

2Printer syntax is rather simple. You should specify a source (-src) after 2printer.exe. A source can be a folder, a list of files, or a path to a single file. There are also many additional parameters, which can be configured.
