PDF files only print in landscape

Hello!
I have a user who's running Adobe Standard 8 who has lost his ability to print PDF files portrait style. They all come out landscape. A regular printout comes out on two sheets of paper split down the middle. This didn't used to happen and he swears he hasn't made any changes to the pc, run any updates etc. I'm stumped! I was going to try to download a Post Script driver for his printer but the HP page for what I need is unavailable. Is it worth waiting for HP to fix that page or do you think I have a different problem?
So far we have printed to different models of printers through out the company and we keep getting the same result. I really don't know what to do next. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!
Melissa

    Just realized how dumb that sounds... if I get the same result from other printers it's not a driver problem. Sorry. Still have no idea what to do next though!

    I just realized I'm having the same issue across multiple printers. Also, even whne I select "current page only", all pages print!

When the HP print menu pops up, choose "Fit to printable area" under Page Scaling. The default is "none" and causes the 1/2 page landscape issue.

You could just rotate your photos.


or




the settings on the printer its self may need to be reconfigured.  1) go into your computer's control panel. 2) select "printers and faxes". 3) find your printer and left click it. 4) select "properties". 5) at the top of the menu that pops up choose "advanced". 6) once you click that look for a button near the bottom that says  "Printing defaults". 7) on the side you can choose for your printer to print in portrait or landscape.

Pdf files only save in landscape but the publisher doc is in portrait


I don't know whether you are aware or not, before printing you can select how document should be printed(whether to be landscape or portrait) in printer properties.

Canon ir3045n - when printing the paper orientation has switched to landscape. How do we change it back to portrait?


Hello Donna,

To change the orientation of the printer from landscape to portrait follow these simple steps;

- open any document and go to print from the file menu
- when the printers settings window opens click 'properties'
- In the next up coming windows you can see menus like 'main, page setup, effects' profiles
maintenance etc.
- click 'page setup'
- There you can see 'page size' and 'orientation'
- change the 'orientation' from landscape to portrait
- click ok and print
Done : )


please rate if this solution was helpful for you, thanks you!

PDF files only print in landscape


Found it! The problem was that Adobe was set to print with page scaling set to Tile. Even though you see the preview as portrait (with page setup AND printer setup also in portrait), for Tile, it prints in landscape.
User said this fixed it.

Print problems


Its probally the way your configuring the way the print file is printing (IE: portrait or landscape) portrait is the top side being 8.5" or landscape being 11" wide on top! First make sure your printer has both landscape and portrait formats loaded into your printer. This will help the you by when you go to print you can try both trays to print to. If this is not your problem then its the way driver is configured and possibly try printing to a pdf file. If you cannot create a PDF from the application try finding some trial software that will enable you to create PDF files. If you can create a good PDF file and can then print that file to your printer you will have better results, because the software your using might not be configured to work with this printer. PDF files will work great and you can see the preview before you print. If you have more info like what exact software you are using and what platform(PC or mac) and repost this question i will get the update and i can answer this question better.

Won't print in landscape mode


at the adobe print preview screen, does the preview agree with your desired print? if yes, then is "choose paper source by pdf page size" checked on? and is "Auto-rotate and center" checked on?
