Question about Adobe Systems Adobe Reader

.pdf files uploaded to our company's server in portrait, but print by the end-user in landscape. Suggestions?

The small company I am employed by runs a private server-portal which we upload and share documents amongst ourselves. When we upload .pdf files, they are in "PORTRAIT", but when an end-user downloads the file, saves it, and prints it, it always comes out in "LANDSCAPE", resulting in a huge waste of paper and headaches. Any suggestions?? I can supply additional information, but really just need someone to point me in the right direction. Thanks!

Go into the print driver and the machine settings and make sure the paper size and direction are all in agreement with each out and the paper in the tray itself. If screen icons do not agree with the size and direction of the paper in the tray you will have a lot of weird problems.

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.

When I try to print a page from the web, it prints what looks like code. It will not print the actual page that is front of me on the web. However, if print from Word Perfect, it is fine.


It's not your printer problem. The web page size is different from paper size. For these reson when you select whole web page, the web page divide more sector and at these time your printer print one of them or more.
Here is a software that help you to print the web pagehttp://www.printpunk.com/downloads.htm
Or,
There are some web site to print web page.
Jast go to the web, paste expected web address and try to print.
Or
If you are wondering why you can't just click the print command and get the web page or other internet page you're looking at to print out properly, you're not alone. Too often pages get cut off at the margin so the ends of lines are missing or pictures are cut off, or blanks appear where words or images should be. This is pretty frustrating because you can see the words right there on the screen; they're there, but when you print them out they're gone.
Never fear-- we a have a few how to tips and tricks for you to get those internet pages to print out nice, neat and complete.
First Click on Print Preview
Before you print out a page, go to your browser menu (usually the file menu) and click on print preview. This will bring up images of the web pages as they will appear on a print out. If they look good, all you should have to do is click the print command, usually also found in the browser menu file window, and they will print out as shown. Note, however, that once in a great while the print preview will not be accurate, and the print out will not match the preview. But don't tear your hair out, just make use of the tips that follow.
Look for the Printer Friendly Link
Some pages will have a "printer friendly" or "printable version" link or the like. Click on this link and you will get a version of the web page or pages that is optimized for print out. Once you have brought up this printer friendly version, just click on your print command found in your internet browser window. You might still have some problems if you are printing on a black and white printer, which we will discuss later, but otherwise you should get a faithful print out.
Also Look for the Pdf File Link
If the page you've called up comes up as a pdf file, you should have no problem printing it. If it is the usual html file, it may also have a link that will take you to a pdf file version of the same pages. Look for this pdf file link and click on it to bring up the pdf file. To read this pdf file, you will need a copy of adobe acrobat, which you can download for free by clicking on this adobe acrobat link. Remember that once you're in a pdf file, you should click on the print command in the pdf file menu, not on the print command found in your internet browser window. Clicking on the browser print command may cause all kinds of problems, depending on how your computer is configured.

Print in Landscape Instead of Portrait
If the print preview shows pages cut off on the margin, and you don't have a access to printer friendly or pdf versions, you can print the pages out in landscape instead of portrait format. If you don't know already, landscape prints left to right across the longest dimension of the page (as in a landscape painting) and portrait prints out the normal way (as in a portrait painting). When you print in landscape, you are pretty much guaranteed that nothing will get cut off at the margins. In most browsers, you go to the file menu, click on 'page setup', and in the page setup window click check the landscape box before you do your print out.
Black and White Printer Problems
Some black and white printers do not convert all the colors to black or gray causing some elements of pages not to print out at all. You get blanks spaces instead of words or picture. I have a black and white printer that does not print out blue. This is really aggravating when printing out text that contains a lot of those blue underlined links. You are reading a sentence and suddenly there are missing words.
There are a couple of solutions here. The obvious one is to print out the pages on a color printer or a different black and white printer that does not have this problem. Another solution is to cut and paste the web page into another program such as a word processing program. In many cases you can just then print out the pages and they will print fine. In other cases you will have to use the software program (that you've just pasted the page into) to change the problem color portions to black and white, and then print out the pages.
Problems Photocopying Web Page Print Outs
Sometimes a page prints out fine on a color printer, but you have problems copying color portions on a black and white photocopier. A lot of photocopiers don't copy yellow well. This may be intentional, as it allows you to get good copies of things written on yellow legal pads, and to eliminate yellow highlighter marks from pages you have marked up. However if the yellow is content you want to keep, it just gets lost. Try another photocopier; they don't all do this. Alternatively, print out on a black and white printer before you photocopy.
When All Else Fails
If you still can't print out successfully, you can try another web browser, or you can email the webmaster or other contact for that website and ask for a fix, copy of their catalog or whatever ot

Try printing to a different printer if possible. This may shed some light on whether the problem is with the printer or with Excel. You could also open the file on a completely different PC and printer to see if something is corrupt in the file. Also try creating a completely new document to see if it will print in landscape. Can you print in landscape orientation from MS Word or another program?

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.

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.

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.
