The LaTeX portland package

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

The portland package implements changing from portrait to landscape orientation and back within your SWP or SW document. No special drivers are required, but you may need to change the orientation settings for your printer so that your document prints properly. If you have a single page with an orientation different from that of the rest of the document, you may need to print it separately after changing the printer settings accordingly.

You can define portrait and landscape environments with simple commands inserted in TeX fields. No package options are available.

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.

If you have Version 4.x or later, the PackageSample-portland.tex file installed in the SWSamples directory of your program installation contains additional information. If you have an earlier version, you can download the sample file from our website.

  1. Add the portland package to your document.

  2. Place the insertion point where you want the orientation to change in your document.

  3. Enter a TeX field.

  4. Type \landscape to change the page layout orientation from portrait to landscape.
