This progress form opens when you start the conversion. The
screenshot above is for the batch converter. In batch mode, a bold
caption describing the current action is displayed at the top of
the form. DocToHtml counts files converted not one by one, but as
they are presented in the conversion list items editor. That is,
each folder is counted as one item, regardless of how many files it

is not an estimate of the time until the end of the whole batch
process, if you are using the batch converter.)
“Overall progress” is an estimate of the
conversion progress for the current document. The number an the

the current processing stage, the name of which is displayed just
above the progress indicator. The progress relates to the document
being processed only. This is the most accurate value.
The status string at the bottom of the form displays the most
detailed information on the current processing step.
The “Abort” button is for aborting the
The “Minimize to Tray” button, in the
bottom-left corner, minimizes the progress form to the system tray,
so that you can have one less application on the taskbar.
