Default print – landscape setting?

Post by Hans L »

Hello:

Almost everything I print in XnView should be printed in Landscape mode. However, the default setting is Portrait. Is there any way to change this default setting to Landscape (I have not found a way)?

Thanks,

Hans L

Thank you for your response.

I don't want to change the global setting. I print out many more Word docs (mostly portrait) than image files, so I would preferably want to change to Landscape in XnView rather than trying to remember to change it (almost) every time I print. Any chance of that?

Regards,

Hans L

Rotating the image 90º before before printing - one click on the toolbar - effectively prints an image in Landscape using the default XnView print setting.

Easy for single images but still not ideal for printing multiple images...
