Abstract

A method is described for automatically engaging sideways printing for appropriate situations. To distinguish a graphic print, it is often rotated 90 degrees to more closely resemble the display. Many programs with graphics output have requirements for normal (vertical) and sideways (horizontal) printing. In the past, separate routines were used to accommodate each case. The method in this disclosure handles both situations.
