File Conversion Filter Names

Tables with filter names for command line document conversion.


Filter names are used when importing and exporting files in alien formats and converting files formats through the command line.

soffice --convert-to OutputFileExtension[:OutputFilterName[:OutputFilterParams[,param]]] [--outdir output_dir]

If --convert-to is used more than once, last value of OutputFileExtension[:OutputFilterName[:OutputFilterParams]] is effective. If --outdir is used more than once, only its last value is effective. For example:

--convert-to pdf *.doc

--convert-to pdf:writer_pdf_Export --outdir /home/user *.doc

--convert-to "html:XHTML Writer File:UTF8" *.doc

--convert-to "txt:Text (encoded):UTF8" *.doc

soffice --infilter="InputFilterName[:InputFilterParams[,param]]"

--infilter="Text (encoded):UTF8,LF,Liberation Mono,en-US".
