I have found that if I change a layout orientation it will also change the orientation in all the other layouts. Does anyone know if it's possible to do both orientations within one file?
Yes, it's possible to have different orientations (and page / media sizes) within the same database. If you're wanting to do this to print (which I suspect is what you're after), the easiest way to manage it is to write a script that restores the Print Setup (Windows) or Page Setup (Mac) settings prior to printing. Then you can attach that script to a button that your users can click to restore the appropriate settings.
Thanks Mike, this is helpful.
I generally store page orientation in a text box on the layout itself. I name a text box "orientation" and give it a value of "landscape" or "portrait". Then on Layout Load I run a script that checks that named object (using GetLayoutObjectAttribute) and uses Print Setup to set the correct orientation.
Thanks David. These are electronically filled out forms and are a collection of both orientations, I was hoping to find a way for the electronic version to view and fill in landscape. Do you know how to do this?
