epub doesn't have any concept of landscape vs. portrait. It's a reflowable format, so it will be landscape vs. portrait based on your display aspect ratio.

How do you do what? Maybe you should tell us what you're seeing. Epub doesn't have a landscape mode.

My mistake I meant to write Epub doesn't have a landscape mode.

I ask again what are you seeing? Also what are you using to view the epub?

As previously stated epub doesn't make a file in lanndscape or portrait mode.
It is your viewer or ebook reader that decides whether it is displayed in lanndscape or portrait mode.

They (viewer or reader) don't decide this based on the epub but on how you have configured them.

Perhaps you accidentally selected landscape mode as it is easy to do.

If you are sure you haven't then please explain the problem in more detail or try viewing the book(s) in a totally different viewer

Well that is too bizarre.
Perhaps I am wrong but my only sugestion is to start a new thread and call it my books are rotated 90 degrees clockwise by calibre.

Portrait does not describe it.

I am pretty sure it can be fixed but not something I have encountered in converting 800 pdfs.

Regards
Helen

I know you aren't intentionally trying to be vague. First you said it was landscape now it seems you are saying your words are rotated too.

What are you using to view this file?

Since a all text epub isn't capable of being confused as being in landscape mode it seems obvious, from our confusion at figuring out what you're saying, that you are possibly dealing with an all image PDF that got skewed during conversion.

My advice to anyone having any difficulty converting a PDF is to read the PDF with a PDF reader.

Good luck.

If possible post a couple of pics, may help everyone to understand the problem.

Just as an information, that link is broken. You might want to link to the post you're referencing.
