>One of my co-workers just asked me why his landscape pages went portrait
when he converted his Word file to PDF. Both he and I are old Framers, and
we know it's possible in Frame. Not so much in Word?<

Hi Rick

I attended the NZ Technical Writers meeting last night where the topic was
Adobe Acrobat. I've never used it before so my answer is a little short on
details but in v5.0 (not sure about earlier ones) there is a Rotate setting
for landscape pages. It is a setting in either the PDFMaker in Word or in
the Distiller itself. Sorry I can't remember any more than that.
