Print Setup keeps reverting to landscape orientation (Windows)

In a FM 15 file shared using Filemaker server, on first launch all layouts for a database revert to landscape orientation under page setup. I've tried restricting this using the "Set Allowed Orientations" command but that seems to have no effect. I've tried selecting a different printer and changing the orientation to portrait there. While it does save the new printer as the default for the file, the orientation inexplicably reverts back to landscape on next launch. The layout is designed to fit on a single portrait letter-sized page.

 

We've wasted a ton of paper in the organization as many users either forget or don't know how to change the orientation before printing. Is there any way to force portrait view for all users as the default?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.
