Description Markus Steiner 2004-01-03 21:43:20 UTC
The ps-renderer doesn't produce correct output if the page format is defined 
as landscape. 
I tested the outpot wit following fo-file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<fo:root font-family="Times Roman" font-size="12pt"  

		<!-- layout for the first page -->
		<fo:simple-page-master master-name="A4-landscape" reference-
			page-height="21cm" page-width="29.7cm" >
			margin-top="1cm" margin-bottom="1cm" margin-left="1cm" 

  <fo:page-sequence master-reference="A4-landscape">

  <fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">
  <fo:block font-size="18pt" font-weight="bold"> FOP test line </fo:block>


With the PDF-renderer the output is correct. In my project I can not use the 
PDF-renderer. I have to produce documents with differnt EPS-images in it. EPS-
images will not be converted by PDF-renderer. PDF-files will be generated 
by "distiller".

Comment 1 Jeremias Maerki 2004-01-04 17:39:26 UTC
Either you can try the AutoRotate functionality of the PSRenderer (see link 
below) or you can hack in a few lines in PSRenderer.java just before the 
following line in renderPage():

        writeln("0.001 0.001 scale");

The lines to insert are: 

        writeln("/PageSize [" + Math.round(pspagewidth) + " " + Math.round
(pspageheight) + "]");
        writeln("/ImagingBBox null");
        writeln(">> setpagedevice");

Note: this is only roughly tested and is probably incorrect when AutoRotate is 
used together with this hack but it should work in your case. Remember to 
rebuild FOP after that.

The reason for this is the missing PageSize. Distiller doesn't interpret DSC 
comments where this information is provided already.

AutoRotate functionality:

(keeping this bug open as a reminder and a note to myself: HEAD's PSRenderer 
is also missing this, but the Transcoder has is already.)

Fixed in FOP 0.94 and probably earlier versions
