I've just updated Fresco to 2.20, and there seems to be an extra check box in the printer dialogue - portrait or landscape (or I missed it before). Set it to "landscape" and it prints fine.

Thanks for the idea.

Best regards,

What versions of Frescobaldi and LilyPond do you use? I'm asking because there have been changes in how Frescobaldi generates the command to invoke LilyPond (actually because of another, more annoying issue with a Ghostscript version mismatch).

You are using a downloaded LilyPond I assume? What is the exact invocation as specified in the Frescobaldi Preferences dialog?

Hmmm. Ghostscript doesn't seem to have an "upgrade" path, just a "download". Which I did and installed 9.27. But Fresco is still picking up 9.20. Any idea how to get Fresco to change its allegiance?

It might be that my 9.20 seems to be the 32-bit version, and I downloaded the 64-bit version which fits the OS better (windows Home 64 bit).

Best regards,
