The print preview option on IE6 defaults to Landscape with the layout defaulting to "as laid out on screen". Does anyone know how to set the defaults to Portrait and "only the selected frame"?

Thanks and a happy new year

Plejon,

Thanks for the input. I had tried that previously and it works for each session but reverts to landscape for each new session. I guess that the problem lies in the default settings, but how do I access them?

Any ideas from anyone? Hope you all have a great 2002.

I'm not sure how familiar you are with the windows registry, but you can change the default setting for the paper orientation there.

The setting is
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\PageSetup\Orientation

A value of 0 means Landscape
A value of 1 means Portrait

BE VERY CAREFULL editing the registry. Always take a backup before making any changes to it. If you're unsure what to do, give me a shout, or ask a friend who knows what he's doing to make the changes.

If you mess up the registry, your system could start working alltogether !!!!
