Topic: Pdfmark menu rotated sideways, 3 Attachments

Hello. I'm working on a PDF-based cdrom that uses pdfmark commands to create navigational buttons (for home, zoom, next page, previous page, find, and print.)

After recent fixes to the navigational pdfmark code (thanks to Marc Antoni), most of the pdf pages look great.

I'm having trouble, however, with a section of the cdrom with pages in landscape orientation. On these pages, a navigation bar that should appear at the top of the page instead appears on the right hand side, rotated 90 degrees clockwise. The page content is correctly oriented, but is off-screen to the left.

I've played around with modifying the coordinate translations and just made things worse. I'm afraid I don't know enough about how postscript element positioning works. I'd greatly appreciate any help.

I've attached some sample files showing the problem:
content.ps --- the original postscript output from Adobe Framemaker
menu.ps --- the ps file after adding pdfmark code for navigation
menu.pdf --- a rendered pdf showing the rotation problem

Thank you very much for your help,
