I have a file called "test2.html" which is in the folder
I want to convert it and therefore execute this command from a command line:
C:\Program Files (x86)\LyX 2.1\bin>start "office" "C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreO
ffice 4\program\swriter.exe" -convert-to odt "D:\Download\test2.html" -headless
result: nothing happens
Now I execute exactly the same command but from a console that was stated from the same folder as the html file:
D:\Download>start "office" "C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOffice 4\program\soffice
.exe" -convert-to odt "D:\Download\test2.html" -headless
result: I get a test2.odt file
But to be able to use the document conversion I need to execute soffice.exe from different folders. It is quite useless that one needs to call it from the same folder. I mean I have several files living in different directories and I need to convert the all.
is there at least a workaround?
(Specifying and -outdir does not help)
I can confirm with Version: 184.108.40.206.alpha1+
