Landscape PDFs?


Website Feedback


I like PDF. Because they're not paper.
I hate PDF. Because they're "Printable Documents", meant to be paper.

There's an inherent flaw in this concept when it applies to products people might want to use only on a screen.

Because not all of us have (portrait) tablets, why oh why can't we get Landscape-formatted, medium font, PDFs?
As is, PDFs are not well suited for onscreen use on laptops at all.

And for those who like print-outs, and if Paizo won't produce "choose your format" products (as some third parties do), well, what about landscape print outs? Uses less lateral table real estate! Gorgeous landscape illustrations! Stun the competition! Amaze your neighbours!

At this time, additional PDF layouts/special formats beyond what we've already done (like adding a Lite PDF variation) are quite difficult to fit into our production process (as this would involve an entirely new multistep process in itself). This is a very intriguing idea, and we will keep it in mind as we add new options/features.

Moved thread to Website Feedback.


I'm just the opposite. I hate landscape formatting, especially when it comes to printing them out. I prefer to have hard copies of things when I want to really sit down and read them closely. Perhaps if I had a tablet it would be different, but as I don't own one, I prefer the old fashioned way.


If it were possible to "auto-change" the format to Landscape, I would love it!

I run my home game off my laptop, don't use hard copy, and Landscape would be so much nicer.

However, I understand the issues, and am not suggesting nor demanding something now. Perhaps in the future.

Same here. I almost never use my print copy of my books. I always click open the PDF to find something. In or out of the game.

Legendary Games does this! I read my .pdf of Treasurey of the Macabre off my phone all the time for my Carrion Crown game.
