My default paper orientation is set to landscape and I want to set it to portrait.
I can not find this setting toggle in osX10.6.2. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks

I'd recommend updating to 10.6.3, there's no use in fixing it if you're just going to update anyway

To do this go >Software Update

You need to do the toggling from your Printer setup and options. Additionally, it may also depend on which software you're printing from. For example: The printer default (normally portrait) can be changed when selecting "landscape" from your word processor.

Regards.
