I have several custom layouts saved in my User Templates. I start with Page Setup to set my paper size and orientation (portrait or landscape). After setting an 8x10 landscape in Page Setup, I choose one of my saved User Templates that were designed for an 8x10 landscape. When I click on the saved User Template, my screen changes to a portrait orientation. How do I correct this?

Hi LWH, welcome to the forum!

If I remember rightly, the page setup is saved as part of the template, so it should have remembered the page rotation. For these existing templates, you could select the template and THEN select the page orientation.
