:thumbsup: Rotated Landscape to rotate the print 90 degrees counterclockwise on the page.

Looking in Help and Support for Windows XP they have 3 options for printing
1) Portrait
2) Landscape
3) Rotated landscape -----LOOK BELOW IN QUOTATION MARKS

Well, I can look till I'm blind. I only have Portrait and Landscape. I am using XP SP3 and Office 2007.

I need to type on Christmas Cards. They are an odd shape and have to be inserted sideways into Paper Feed Switch. The printing would then be done vertically 90 degrees and backwards. I need to set it up like that. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to do it.

"To set page orientation
To change printing preferences, you must have the Print permission, which is one of several printer permissions. For more information, click Related Topics.

Any changes you make in Printing Preferences will alter the default document settings for the printer and will affect all documents you send to the printer. To change print settings for individual documents from within a program, click Page Setup (or Print Setup) on the program's File menu, and then make selections.

Open Printers and Faxes.
Right-click the icon for the printer you are using, and then click Printing Preferences.
On the Layout tab, under Orientation, click one of the following options:
Portrait to print vertically on the page.
Landscape to print horizontally on the page.
Rotated Landscape to rotate the print 90 degrees counterclockwise on the page.
A representation of your selection will appear in the display area of the dialog box.

Notes

To open Printers and Faxes, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Printers and Faxes.
You can also open printing preferences in Printers and Faxes by clicking a printer, and then clicking Select printing preferences under Tasks on the left side of the window. This option is available only if folders are set to look like a Web page and a printer is selected. For more information, click Related Topics.
The Orientation options appear in the dialog box only if your printer supports this feature. The specific options available depend on the printer you are using.
To set the printing default for all users connected to the printer, see Set printing defaults.

Hello rikki,

If you can't rotate the text at the printer level, it might be easiest to rotate the text in the document file itself before printing the file. An easy way to do this is to create a 1-celled table and rotate the text in the cell, as described in the link below at Answer:

http://en.allexperts.com/q/Microsoft-Word-...rotate-text.htm

The directions are for Word 2002, but the same concept applies in Word 2007.

Thank you. I will try that. Maybe now my headache will go away.
