Topic: CropBox usage

Hi

I have written a component that generates PDF files. These files get printed on various types of printers, and only on Xerox printers do I get an issue with the
orientation of my pages. Portrait pages are printed landscape and vice versa.

To resolve this issue I have added the seemingly optional rectangle information CropBox and set its values to be the same as the MediaBox item. This has caused the Xerox printer to display portrait and landscape correctly, but a small amount of data is
missing from the left and right hand side of the page.

Can anyone tell me whether my CropBox solution is the correct way to go, and if so why is some of the text missing.

Thanks

Steve
