Hi all. Here's a sticky one for you...I'm working in Word 97 and using
Acrobat 4.0 to create .PDF files from my .DOC files. I've got a document
formatted in 'portrait' page orientation, with the exception of a couple of
pages, which are 'landscape'. When I print it as a .DOC file, the landscape
pages print with the text facing right (so that I have to turn the book to
the right to read it). This is the way I want it. However, when I print
the .PDF file, those same landscape pages print with the text facing left
(so that I have to turn the book to the left to read it). Is there some way
to make the .PDF act like the .DOC file when printing? The text on the
landscape pages is in a table.

Also, is there any way to print text in landscape but print the header or
footer in portrait on the same page?? Any workarounds you know of?
Unfortunately, neither the archives nor my Special Edition "Using Microsoft
Word 97" book have come to my aid. (Neither did Word's online help!) Many
thanks -
