In the Print Shop 3.0.3 and earlier versions of Print Shop, it is not possible to successfully save a project which is created in Landscape orientation. After a Landscape project is saved in Print Shop 3.0.3 and earlier versions, if that same project is opened again in any version of Print Shop 3.0, it will open in Portrait orientation - because it was actually saved in Portrait orientation.
That Landscape/Portrait problem is fixed in Print Shop 3.0.5 and Print Shop 3.0.6. So, after a Landscape project is saved with either Print Shop 3.0.5 or Print Shop 3.0.6, if that same project is opened again in any version of Print Shop 3.0, it will open as a Landscape project - because it was actually saved in Landscape orientation.
However, when 'Print Preview' is selected for Print Shop 3.0.5/3.0.6 Landscape projects, the Landscape project will be displayed incorrectly in Portrait orientation. And, if the project is printed from the Print Preview window, the project will print incorrectly in Portrait orientation.
If the project is printed in the normal manner - by clicking on the 'Print' icon on the Print Shop 3.0 'Home' tab - the project should print correctly in Landscape orientation.
One method for working around the Print Preview limitations in Print Shop 3.0.5 and Print Shop 3.0.6 is to install an alternate PDF driver, then 'Print to PDF' INSTEAD OF 'Save as PDF', as is described in the 'Save as PDF vs File | Print to PDF' pinned item, which can be viewed by clicking on the link below
After the PDF is saved to the hard drive, the project can be viewed as a Print Preview by simply double-clicking on the PDF file to open it in Adobe Reader. If the PDF file displays correctly in Adobe Reader, you can either print directly from Adobe reader or print the project from Print Shop 3.0.
