How to change the orientation of a single typeset page

Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

Use the portland package to create a section of your document in a different orientation:

  1. Add the portland package to your document.

    NoteIf you have Version 3.5x or later, the portland package is installed in the TCITeX/TeX/latex209/contrib/misc directory of your program installation. If you have Version 3.0, you can download the portland package from our website.

  2. Place the insertion point where you want the orientation change to occur.

  3. Enter a TeX field.

  4. In the entry area, type \landscape or \portrait, depending on the orientation you want, and choose OK.

  5. Place the insertion point where you want to return to the original orientation.

  6. Enter a TeX field.

  7. In the entry area, type \portrait or \landscape, whichever is appropriate, and choose OK.

You can change the orientation of the entire document. When you change orientation, you may need to change the orientation of the previewer. The printed output depends on your printer's capabilities and settings.

Packages that involve rotating text, such as the lscape package, are not compatible with the TrueTeX Previewer. However, PDF viewers support rotation, so you can use the lscape package to rotate text in typeset PDF files.
