I have an Apple-Mac running osx 10.5.7 with Adobe CS4 apps installed. Also attached is an Epson R1800 inkjet printer, using the latest Epson specific driver. I cannot print in landscape from either InDeisgn or Photoshop.

* other applications such as Word CAN print in landscape.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I usually make a pdf in indesign then print from that.

Here's the dialogue box I get for straight printing from indesign found under the page setup tab. Ensure you have the landscape option selected (the one on the right) see pic

Thanks Philip..
thanks for the screen shot.. and I have double checked that I selected landscape..
I'll check.. but I think printing a PDF won't allow all the higher colour options the driver has available.. and are needed for the final print job.

Thanks for the help..

Also in most apps the document can easily be changed to landscape document in page setup. Not the best option, but when all fails.

I export/save all my pdfs as PDF/X-1a:2001

This is the way I send all my files to commercial printers.

Try a test on your printer for quality and colour.
