Subject:Landscape pages--Word to PDF From:"Rhonda Munster" <rhonda -at- helpsystems -dot- co -dot- nz> To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Fri, 5 Oct 2001 08:53:43 +1200
>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?<
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.
