Portrait format

Recommended Posts

How do I format ISO A1 size sheets as portrait, rather than landscape? I will be exporting as pdfs for printing by others as I only have an A3 printer.

Sorry, don't understand. I want to lay out a page with one viewport and some notes and print at A1. The grey page outline only ever shows landscape format but in this case portrait would work much better, but I can't find a way of changing it.

If you change it from landscape to portrait in File > Page Setup > Printer Setup, where there are two little icons that determine this, does it not change in your document as well?

You may need to create a custom paper size equivalent to ISO A1 using this method:


(The above link is geared towards fixing another problem, but should correct this as well.)

Hi Roger

You can just swap the page width and page beight numbers around in the Page Setup dialog...

Hope that helps and that you are all well.
