Can only Print Confluence Page in Landscape when Using Chrome

I have an odd situation. I primarily use Google Chrome and usually have no issues. However, when I try to print a Confluence page, the page will only print in landscape mode. I tried printing a Jira page, and it will print in profile mode. Anyone else see this issue?

I am using OnDemand, without team calendars and I have the same problem in Chrome, not Safari.

In the print dialog, I see the portrait /landscape options appear and quickly disappear. Therefore the choice to change to portrait is withdraw somehow.

@Jimmy,

Actually, I've found that using your suggestion:

@page:first{size:auto;}

will only fix the first page and still not let you orient the rest of the pages. Instead, I was able to use:

@page:right{size:auto;}

@page:left{size:auto;}

to achieve success.

Hi Jimmy,

I've encountered the same issue and I believe it to be the cause of Team Calendars. Are you using team calendars?

When I looked at the css, it seems that Team Calendars includes a css file () that contains the following line:

@page{size:landscape;}

I've created a ticket: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/TEAMCAL-2027and hopefully it gets fixed.

A temporary workaround is to add:

@page:first{size:auto;}

to the global stylesheet.

Hi Jimmy, do you by chance have Team Calendars installed, specifically version 4.1 or higher? If so, it may be interfering in some way with Chrome. If this pertains to you, downgrading to Team Calendars version 4.0.5.2 may resolve your issue. Additionally, using a different browser like Firefox may allow you to print in Portrait mode.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,

Brian
