  2. Select Page Setup.
  3. For Orientation, click the appropriate icon to select either 'Portrait' or 'Landscape'.

    • For landscape printing with Mac OS X v.10.4.11, you can select the top and bottom of the paper to match the paper to be printed.
  4. Click 'OK'.
  5. Open Print dialog and click 'Print'.
