Landscape, page number, alignment

Postby Nicki » Tue Apr 30, 2019 11:13 pm


I am a beginner but I want to have some selected pages of my article in landscape and the rest in display. When I use
  1. \begin{landscape}
the page is indeed rotated but the page number doesn't rotate as well. How can I fix this? For now I have manually added the page number by
  1. \vfill \raisebox{-4.79cm}{\makebox[\linewidth]{\thepage}}
but this doesn't look nice.

Another problem is that I my floating object is not centered. This is because Lyx still thinks this is a page in display mode only rotated by 90°. So I want to rotate the spacing of the margins as well. How can I do that?

Help is highly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

You are using package lscape or pdflscape for {landscape}, don't you? If so, this is the expected and the intention of the package. The page head and page footer should not be rotated, because these are used for the user orientation, e.g., while he is searching for a page or section. It would be very annoying if the reader has to rotate the book at every rotated page.

If you want a page with real changed dimensions, you can do this changing the page sizes. Package typearea provides changing page sizes inside the document. But I do not know how to use this package with LyX, because I do not use LyX (it is too restrictive for me and produces ugly code).
