PDF Landscape orientation

Post by revaljilji » Thu Feb 13, 2020 12:10 pm

Hi,
I'm using orient="land" attribute by tables and it works great. This solution is suitable for printing, but in case user wants to view the page on the computer its difficult to read it. Is it possible to rotate the whole page containing the table with attribute orient set to land?

BR,
R

Hi,

It is possible to rotate the whole topic that contains the table.
See the instructions under "If you want to rotate the entire topic that contains the big table, use:" in this page from DCPP User-Guide.

Thank you for the reply Costin. I didn't find any .css files in my plugin directory. We are using XSL:FO plugin.

Reading my post again I think my question wasn't specific and clear. I don't want whole content of the .dita page in the landscape mode, I'm fine with having the table on the separate page in the pdf. Instead I want the page with the rotated table to be in landscape format in pdf, so the page size should be 297x210 instead 210x297.

Hi,

Sorry, we only have a solution for you using our CSS-based PDF output.
If you want this for XSL-FO based output maybe you can ask around on the DITA Users List.
