I have an issue in an old version of Adobe Acrobat (5.0.10) where the user prints in landscape and the result shows in portrait... they'd like the output to be in landscape as well... there seems to be some setting or something that's changed... it seems to work for a while (maybe a couple of days or so) and then reverts back to this annoying issue...  any help would be GREATLY appreciated...
