Im am having trouble with a system that is running XP SP2 and Adobe Acrobat v8, it will not print landscape no matter what printer settings are set.  I have tried changing the printer defaults, installing updated drivers,e tc but no luck.  Is this a flaw in Acrobat and is there an easy fix?

Do you mean "print to a PDF file".... or are you actually talking about sending a PDF to a physical printer

In the printer settings/preferences, see if there is a setting to "Print as an image"  and try that.

No I wasnt printing to a PDF, I was sending the PDF doc from within Adobe directly to a physical printer.

I'll try the Print as Image option.

OK... that sounds more like an issue with the print driver (and nothing to do with Adobe).   As a test, can you print to the "Microsoft XPS Document Writer" (or some other printer) to see if that works.

On this users system I can print from any other app to this same local printer in either landscape or portrait without issue.

Using the "Convert to PDF" optionraqther than printing to a PDF from OUtlook seems to work.
