When printing landscape maps through the ArcPress Printer Engine, map should print automatically rotated to fit onto the page.
For example, an ANSI E size page in landscape orientation is 44 inches wide by 34 inches high. If a large format printer is loaded with 36 inch wide paper, ArcPress should automatically rotate the map image to it.
However, automatic rotation sometimes does not work correctly. The page does not rotate, and the image is truncated at the edge of the paper.
The ArcPress Printer Engine is not correctly detecting the maximum paper width of the printer.
Use the following procedure to force ArcPress to detect the maximum paper width of the printer by altering the paper list in the printer's default printing preferences.
Be sure to change the paper list so that it contains at least one paper with a minimum dimension equal to the width of paper loaded in the printer.
1. In this example, click on the Size drop down list and select Edit Paper List. This will open the Paper Sizes dialog box.
2. Check on Architectural then click OK.
3. Click OK on the Printer Properties dialog box.
Large format printer drivers will vary, however, the driver installed for your printer should have similar options.
If the printer is shared from a network location, the above procedure may need to be applied on the server install of the driver. If ArcPress still does not properly rotate the map, the above procedure may need to be applied within the actual map. Navigate to File > Page and Printer Setup, click the Properties button and follow steps 5 and 6.
