Using Cute PDF to save Journal files the page orientation changes

    We've just got our first Tablet for a client meeting room and we want to
    ensure that whatever's created in the journal can be distributed and read by
    our clients and internal staff. The JNT format is not ideal so I've
    installed Cute PDF and we're going to configure our save option to print to
    Cute PDF.
    Problem: The Tablet screen orientation is Landscape, the Journal page
    orientation is Landscape, but when the PDF is created the page orientation is
    Portrait and the PDFmust be rotated before it can be viewed.
    Using Cute PDf with other Office Apps I don't have this issue.
    Any ideas folks?
    Thanks in advance

    Try printing until you get the results you want & then click File Save As
    [new name].
    The settings will then be stored inside the document.

    Using Acrobat Reader to view the created document, rotating and then saving
    again doesn't solve the issue. The rotate action isn't saved. If I use
    Acrobat Writer to rotate and save this would work but I'm trying to avoid
    assigning a $300 Acrobat Writer license to the Tablet

    Thanks - I'm aware of the journal reader but A. don't want to install this on
    2,000+ enterprise machines and B. Can't gaurantee that our clients will have
    this software. PDF is a format that can be universally used which is why
    it's my preferred format.

    A: If you are in fact 'Enterprise' then you won't mind paying Adobe a licence
    B: Adobe Reader is a free download.
    C: FAQ - Is CutePDF software Spyware?
    As part of our commitment to personal privacy, none of our products contain
    any form of Spyware or Pop up Ads.

    Two thoughts

    What is the page default in Ghostscript - I think CutePDF uses it as
    part of its process.

    Use PDFCreator - Open source from

    It does exactly what you want - at least on my tablet.

    Okay, then you would need to contact the software company you've decided to
    use, Penny. I gave you the simple, free solution from Microsoft, but I'm
    pretty sure CutePDF will be happy to charge you for the 2,000+ user base.
    And they should also be able to figure out how their program needs to
    function to manipulate the Windows Journal file the way you'd like. Have
    you contacted their support department? This doesn't seem to be a problem
    with Journal, but a problem with the program you want to use.

  9. As doug_dad already said: "If you are in fact 'Enterprise' then you
    won't mind paying Adobe a licence fee."

    As to my experience one simply misses too much when using any of the
    "free" or shareware or third-party (non-Adobe) PDF tools.
    Only the full Acrobat (not the old Writer <!!!>) produces PDFs with
    the internal links (Word-Documents) and WebCapture feature (producing
    PDFs with active links) is AFAICS only available in Acrobat itself.

    Therefore I for one have invested in an Acrobat licence for my
