Direc­tory tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/rotating


A package built on the standard LaTeX graphics package, which performs
all the different sorts of rotation one might like, including complete
floating figures/tables and their captions.  The commented source
contains the manual, and there is a set of tests in examples.tex.  The
file examples.tex doubles as a (somewhat disorganised) tutorial for
use of the package.

Install by running TeX on rotating.ins and place `rotating.sty'
"where LaTeX can find it" -- see
for guidance on such installation.

Alternatively, a .tds.ins file is available on the CTAN install tree:
install that at the root of your TEXMF-LOCAL tree.

ro­tat­ing – Ro­ta­tion tools, in­clud­ing ro­tated full-page floats

A pack­age built on the stan­dard LaTeX graph­ics pack­age to per­form all the dif­fer­ent sorts of ro­ta­tion one might like, in­clud­ing com­plete fig­ures and ta­bles with their cap­tions.

If you want con­tin­u­ous text (i.e., more than one page) set in land­scape mode, use the lscape pack­age in­stead. The ro­tat­ing pack­ages only deals in ro­tated boxes (or floats, which are them­selves boxes), and boxes al­ways stay on one page.

If you need to use the fa­cil­i­ties of the float in the same doc­u­ment, load ro­tat­ing.sty via rot­float, which smooths the path be­tween the ro­tat­ing and float pack­ages.
