Cannot set paper orientation when select File - Print

One Hundred Papercuts

Bug Description

When you click File - Print, you may not be able to find paper orientation (This is true for e.g Firefox, Document Viewer).

Paper orientation is hidden in File - Page Setup. I find it most logical to select orientation when I want to print a page.
And if people are disagreeing with me, why not both places?

Thank you for bringing this bug to our attention. Unfortunately a paper cut should be a small usability issue that affects many people and is quick and easy to fix. I'm afraid this bug can't be addressed as part of this project.

The OP has a valid point , but ideal solution would be to add a "Page Setup" tab to the print dialogue. Which is not a easy/simple fix, Hence not a papercut.

A paper cut is a minor usability annoyance that an average user would encounter on his/her first day of using a new installation of Ubuntu 9.10.

Don't worry though, This bug has been marked as "invalid" ONLY in the papercuts project.
