    Could an example be provided on how to create a PDF and set the Margins and Orientation for WinForms?

    And if this involves the orientation involves use of PageRotation, could you please include how to rotate the text to match the rotation?

    Hello Trey,

    You could use the API of RadFixedDocumentEditor to set the margins and rotation of a page. Please, refer to the snippet below, which demonstrates how you could achieve this:
    RadFixedDocument document = new RadFixedDocument();
    using (RadFixedDocumentEditor editorDocument = new RadFixedDocumentEditor(document))
        editorDocument.SectionProperties.PageMargins = new Padding(300);
        editorDocument.SectionProperties.PageRotation = Rotation.Rotate90;       
        editorDocument.InsertRun("Test Run.");
        editorDocument.InsertLine("Some longer test sentence.");
        editorDocument.InsertRun("Another Run.");

    Using the PageRotation property of the SectionProperties object, the text will be automatically rotated with the page.

    Hope this is helpful.
