Hmmm, this might explain some problems I've been having recently...

Is PageCatcher aware of rotation?

I think Acrobat generates PDFs which use rotation rather than changing 
the page dimensions, so landscape PDFs generated with Acrobat and 
handled with PageCatcher end up being rotated to portrait...
