Thanks for answer. So I'll be waiting for new release of RichTextEditor control working correctly.

Hello, Jacek,
           
When you call the Print method, a plain RadPrintDocument is created and indeed, the page orientation is not respected in this case. Currently, only with the PrintPreview method the PageOrientation of the document is taken into consideration.

However, it is a reasonable request the PageOrientation to be respected in all printing cases. 

I have logged it in our feedback portal by making this thread public. You can track its progress, subscribe for status changes and add your comments on the following link - feedback item.

Currently, the possible solution that I can suggest is to use the following custom ribbon UI and RadRichTextEditor:

public class CustomRichTextEditorRibbonBar : RichTextEditorRibbonBar
{
    protected override void BackstageButtonPrint_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        this.AssociatedRichTextEditor.Print(true);
    }
}
 
public class CustomRichTextEditor : RadRichTextEditor
{
     
    public override void Print(bool showPrinterSettings)
    {
        RadPrintDocument document = new RadPrintDocument();
        if (this.Document.Sections.Count > 0)
        {
            document.Landscape = this.Document.Sections.First.PageOrientation == PageOrientation.Landscape;
        }
        Print(showPrinterSettings, document);
    }
 
    public override void Print(bool showPrinterSettings, RadPrintDocument document)
    {
        if (this.Document.Sections.Count > 0)
        {
            document.Landscape = this.Document.Sections.First.PageOrientation == PageOrientation.Landscape;
        }
        base.Print(showPrinterSettings, document);
    }
}

Should you have further questions please let me know.

Hello,

1. I'd like to show PrintDialog to give ability to choose printer

2. Information about paper orientation is in document (MS Office can manage this)

3. User select different document and I'dont like to keep information about paper orientation somewhere  else outside and set it programmatically

4. ReachText control should detect paper orientation and set proper 

printDoc.DefaultPageSettings

Hello, Jacek,          

If you call directly Print without showing the print preview window, indeed, the Landscape orientation needs to be changed in the Preferences of the printer. Otherwise, it won't be Landscape.

I can suggest you either to use the PrintPreview approach or use the following code snippet:

RadPrintDocument printDoc = new RadPrintDocument();
printDoc.AssociatedObject = this.radRichTextEditor1;
printDoc.DefaultPageSettings.Landscape = true;
printDoc.Print();

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.

Hi, I do as you said. Behavior is the same.

I think that printer preferences should be set to proper value (Landscape) but they don't

I use function

PageOrientationorientation = this.radRichTextEditor1.Document.SectionDefaultPageOrientation;

and return value is "Portrait"

Hi Jacek,

I have tested this on my side and it appears to work as expected (see attached). Could you please try this by setting "Microsoft Print To PDF" option as default printer? 

I am looking forward to your reply.
