When running a Visualizer Report through the Command Line function, using type ToXPS, the printing preferences set in the Microsoft XPS Document Writer properties are ignored and it only prints in Portrait.


The report prints correctly in Landscape.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Create an actions.xml and Batch file to print a Visualizer report through the Command Line using the instructions from 'Run and Automate Reports from the Command Line' located in the Visualizer help.
  2. Ensure the printing preferences in the Microsoft XPS Document Writer properties are set to Landscape.
  3. Run the Batch file.
  4. Note the report prints out as Portrait and cuts off the right side of the report.
