How to change the page orientation for typeset documents
Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word
Most documents can be typeset using portrait or landscape orientation for all or part of the document. You can change the orientation of your entire document by changing the options for the document class or by adding the geometry package to the document and then modifying the package options. You can also change the orientation of a single page.
If you need to create a section of your document in a different orientation, such as for a landscaped table, use the portland package. Packages that involve rotating text, such as the lscape package, are not compatible with the TrueTeX Previewer. However, PDF viewers do support rotation, so you can use the lscape package to rotate text in typeset PDF files.
Because the document class and package options you specify can conflict, you must be careful not to use contradictory orientation settings. You may need to change the orientation of the previewer. The printed output depends on your printer's capabilities and settings.
