I am currently placing some diagrams with a jsx, and some are of landscape orientation inside a portrait document. i can automatically rotate these images depending on the page.side value during placing the image, but if I shuffle the pages around, or make edits earlier on in the doc, then the page side could change and I'd need to rotate all these images.
I suppose I could make a script for me to run to find all landscape images are rotate accordingly after all edits are done, but there's a chance the I may forget to run it! Do I have a better option? When placing the images, can I set a property so the image will automatically rotate so its bottom edge is on the outside of the page, or is there some other neater way?
Erm, it should be possible, but you might want to look at the books others made before you. It's highly irregular to have to rotate a book into a different direction for landscape tables and figures.
The usual direction is for the reader to rotate the book clockwise, irregardless whether it's on the "top" or the "bottom" page. Imagine having two landscape figures on the same spread. Surely you are not expecting when you view one to be upwards, the other one should be upside down?
Wow, I clearly didn't know that! Thanks for pointing that out, I have some fullbleed images that I thought would look best rotated outwards. I'm going to hit the newsagents and go take a look!
However, if one side is a landscape image, and the other is a portrait image, is the convention still to rotate the image anticlockwise?
