Part 3Tips: Why PDFs Are Still Mostly in Portrait Orientation?

In daily life and work, PDF eBooks, manuals for software and hardware, projects or anything else that is clearly intended to be viewed mainly on screen, which is mostly in vertical orientation. Only in this way, users are able to see the whole content on the screen without zooming in the PDF.

And PDF documents are mainly generated from Word documents or files from InDesign, which are in the portrait orientation. Last, it has become people's habit to read files in portrait orientation instead of in landscape orientation. I bet even you are not willing to read scrapes of papers in landscape orientation, because this orientation might bring you visual pressure.
