Problem description: The problem comes when there is open a document that is in LANDSCAPE mode and a document that is in PORTRAIT mode. Somehow the software treats both documents to be in LANDSCAPE mode. To correctly reproduce the layout of the second document, it changes the size of the document by setting it to USER and inverts the value of Height and Length.
Operating System: Windows 8
Version: release
