Landscape in PDF

Postby helen on Mon Dec 08, 2008 6:23 am

Simply put, does it work? I have a page layout set to A4 landscape for Normal, First, Left, Right, Empty - my topic is associated with this page layout and I publish straight to PDF, but the output is always portrait. Has anyone had this working? Perhaps I'm missing something. I'm using Flare 4.1 now. :D

A bug has been lodged on this - see the post in this forum :

Unfotunately, it's not been fixed in 4.1 :(

For the moment I'm creating Word output, which handles landscape OK and then I'm generating a PDF manually.

Hmm thanks for your reply, I figured as much - I've also put in a bug report. There is an easy work around though - set the orientation to portrait and custom settings. Enter the measurements for A4 landscape (can't recall them off hand) and you get the same result as you would get if landscape in PDF worked. :)

I have given up on Word, it's ignorance of CSS is more than my sanity can handle.
