Requirements and Installation:

This module requires the wkthtmltopdf library to render HTML documents as PDF. Version 0.9.9 or later is necessary, and can be found at for Linux, Mac OS X (i386) and Windows (32bits).

After installing the library on the OpenERP Server machine, you may need to set the path to the wkthtmltopdf executable file in a system parameter named webkit_path in Settings -> Customization -> Parameters -> System Parameters

If you are experiencing missing header/footer problems on Linux, be sure to install a ‘static’ version of the library. The default wkhtmltopdf on Ubuntu is known to have this issue.


  • JavaScript support activation deactivation
  • Collated and book format support
  • Zip return for separated PDF
  • Web client WYSIWYG
