Topic: Distiller refuses landscape pages
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 141970

have a PostScript file that includes some A4 pages that are presented as portrait, and one A3 page that is presented as landscape.
When I convert this PS-file to PDF using Distiller (I have Acrobat 5.0. There wasn't an Acrobat 5.0 forum, so I tried the 6.0 forum instead.) all the pages are presented as portrait no matter what I do. I've tried setting the "Auto-Rotate Pages" setting to all three posibilities (Off, Individually, Collectively by File), and have also tried setting these parameters manually by editing the .joboptions file (/AutoRotatePages /None, /AutoRotatePages /All, /AutoRotatePages /PageByPage) but none of these manages to present the landscaped page as landscape. All of them presents it as portrait, though the PageByPage presents the page rotated 180 degrees when compared to the two other setting).

What can I do to make Distiller make the PDF have this particular page presented as Landscape?

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
