Exported pdf does not keep landscape orientation

I have Crystal Reports Version

My report's page setup is landscape. However, when I export it to a pdf, the pdf changes to portrait orientation.

The end user does not want to change printer settings every time they receive this pdf to make it print in landscape.

I cannot seem to find a solution.

Any suggestions?

    Find out what the users default printer is and then install it on your PC. In Page Setup select his printer and set the orientation accordingly as well as check on the Dissociate check box.

    Do not use the Windows XPS printer as your default, it is not capable of printing Landscape. You can test this with any document....

    This may work for you also:

    Open the report and click the Export menu option and select the Report Export Options: ( this saves the defaults )
