I think a similar problem was reported, and solved, a few months ago, but whether it was on this list or another, I can't recall, and I'm having no luck finding a note in the archives, so...
I've created a landscape-oriented 11"x17" page in Word 2000 (SR2) and tried to create a PDF (same size page and orientation) using Acrobat 5. I tried this first with PDFMaker from Word, and then (when that didn't work) by printing to PS and distilling the PS file. Both methods gave the same result: the PDF is the correct size and shape, but the content is oriented at right angles to the page, so part of the content is cut off.
What am I missing here? Is this a Word problem, or an Acrobat problem, or user error? I'll accept any work-around, as long as it works. I must ship a single PDF. Help!
