I haven't checked this on Windows, but when i go to Print Preview the landscape and portrait seem to be reversed.

You're using a custom Paper size? Maybe Paper width and height is mixed up. If not launch the Print Preview tool, Option Bar / Drawing Preferences / Page and switch from Portrait to Landscape or the other way around.

If a thread is considered as "solved" please change the title of the first post to "[solved] Title...". Thanks!

I see what you're saying, Husky. I had the Page setup all wrong. Sorry.

Hi

I reported this in the bugtracker before:

http://www.qcad.org/bugtracker/index.ph ... sk_id=1518

I agree that technically the program may be acting logically... but the UI is not technical it is for people. Landscape means that the page you see is wider than it is high, not that the attribute labelled height is laid horizontally e_ugeek
