## paper size: landscape broken

 From: Marcus Macauley Subject: paper size: landscape broken Date: Sat, 09 Oct 2004 17:08:25 -0400 User-agent: Opera M2/7.54 (Linux, build 751)

Hi,


The "landscape" option seems to be somewhat broken. On my Fedora system with LilyPond 2.3.18, doing:

#(set-default-paper-size "letter" 'landscape)

at the beginning, and then:

\paper {
#(set-paper-size "letter" 'landscape) % (or even without the 'landscape)
}


as suggested in the documentation, results in the music being oriented correctly, but the page in xdvi or xpdf or acroread or gpdf or ggv (*.ps) still being orienteed as Portrait, and, I believe, A4 as well. In any case, replacing "letter" with "a4" also results in a portrait-oriented page.


Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug? I'd love to know of a workaround if there is one. Adjusting the settings in \bookpaper, e.g.:

\bookpaper {
hsize = 11\in
vsize = 8.5\in
linewidth = 11\in
}


doesn't seem to help; again, it formats the music correctly, but not the page.


Please let me know if there is a workaround or if I'm just doing the wrong thing; otherwise, I'll assume it's a bug which needs to be fixed.

Thanks,
Marcus Macauley
