Landscape and page numbers

Postby Mig01001 » Sat Jul 20, 2013 12:57 pm


I am writing a document of the article class and need to have one single page in landscape for the display of a large table.

I used the pdflscape package and it works just fine except that the page number remains at the "bottom of the page" which ends up being the left side of the page. Naturally, my goal is to put the page number back at the real bottom of the page taking into account that this page has been rotated.

I've been looking for a solution for almost an hour now and can't find any handy solution to this problem. All I seem to find are fairly complicated solutions that won't work properly for me.

Can anyone help me please?

Thank you

You should read the remarks in Rotate Page with landscape Table and Page Number Position in Landscape Format.

Changing the place of the page number on one single page of a document (most probably) will be confusing for the reader.

If you have further questions, please provide a minimal working example to make a question more explicit.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

As I said I had been looking around before asking my question so I already had seen those posts but they do not propose any solution to the problem.

I am still trying different solutions and none worked so far, it's unbelievable that something as simple as rotating the page numbers with the page itself has no simple solution at all...

How did you manage it?

Just to explain, it would be good if you would post a solution even if you found it yourself. You know, other users with the same problem will come here via google, instead of a solution they would just find "solved, gone without telling details". It's a public forum for all to learn, not just with the goal of only personal support. So it would be great if you would add your solution.
