Cannot Open PDF Landscape Pages Properly When Libreoffice

Hi guys,

When I open a pdf with landscape and portrait pages, only the portrait pages get displayed correctly.
What can I do if it is a large file with many pages?
How do I correct this problem?
Thanks.

Re: Cannot Open PDF Landscape Pages Properly When Libreoffice

       If it's not a bug in these newer versions, then
          choose to 'view' landscape rather than portrait  ;-)

       Hope this helps,

Hi anne,

The problem is that if I select page setup and change to landscape, ALL the pages in the pdf will change to landscape. Is there any way to ensure that only that page or a selected range of page get changed?

The only way I have seen that done is to print the document as three
parts and then use a PDF merging package to stitch it back together.

part one - the pages leading up to the landscape page
part two - the landscape page
part three - the rest of the document
then merge/stitch the three documents together with some PDF
editing/splitting/merging package.

I do not know about Windows, but Linux Mint includes a package[s] to
split/merge PDF documents.

Hi.
You could try printing to file as postscript and then converting the
postscript to PDF. (Ghostscript, ps2pdf are free). I have to do this
with quite a few of my files because LO fails to create correct PDF's.

Re: Cannot Open PDF Landscape Pages Properly When Libreoffice

Hi

I find that if you print the file and select 'Print to file' on the Options
tab of the LO print dialogue, it will produce a PDF with portrait and
landscape pages.

       You should be able to select that page, then choose 'landscape' from
the menu options;
            if that does not work,
          well ... ... ... I hope someone else will respond to you.

Re: Cannot Open PDF Landscape Pages Properly When Libreoffice

Going back to clarence's original question ...
If you open a pdf in LO, it opens it in Draw.  Draw only allows its pages
(or slides, as it calls them) to be either landscape or portrait.  As it
says in Help, Page formatting 'Allows you to define page layouts for single
and multiple-page documents'.  The key word here is 'documents'.  It always
was a bit of a fudge to use Draw as a PDF editor because you have to live
by Draw's rules, one of which is only having all portrait or all landscape
pages.

There is already this bug https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=64990.
There might be someone sympathetic enough to work on it, but as it was
created in 2007 and inherited from OOo, I wouldn't be too hopeful of that.
