Page Orientation

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to setup my Sheet Layer so the Page is laid out Landscape, but it can print Portrait? The way my plotter works it kind of backwards from how My screen views it.

Chad,

The easiest way to do this is to define a custom page size and reverse the L & W dimensions. Portrait and Landscape don't actually relate to a page's proportions all they do is rotate the page 90 degrees.

That is fine, except I am looking for a way to do it without having to add custom page sizes to everyone in my offices computers.

If that is the case, you may want to look further into why the plotter does not print at a proper orientation. What is the make and model?

I just checked and updated them. I'm going to wait until the next time I need a plot though before I test print.

If you are using an HP Driver, there should be a "Rotate 90?" check box in the Finishing tab of the Printer Features in the Print Dialog

Check or uncheck this box as desired and save it as a print preset. This will rotate the printed page despite what you have chosen for orientation in the Page Setup.
