How to print with saved roll paper (rotate page to 90 degrees) Mac OSX

Rotate Page 90 degrees (Conserve Paper)

When originals are printed in portrait orientation, the original is rotated 90 degrees before printing if it fits within the roll width.
This enables you to conserve paper.

This topic describes how to conserve roll paper by rotating originals 90 degrees before printing, based on the following example.

Document: Any type
Page Size: A4 (210.0x297.0 mm)/Letter (8.3 x 11.7 in)
Paper: Roll
Paper type: Plain Paper
Roll paper width: A3/A4 roll (297.0 mm [11.7 in])

This example illustrates how to rotate an A4 (210.0x297.0 mm)/Letter (8.3 x 11.7 in) original in portrait orientation 90 degrees to fit within the width of A3/A4 roll (297.0 mm [11.7 in]), which enables you to conserve paper.
