# Re: Sideways longtable

Dear Daniel,

As you can see by the results shown in the attached PDF, "pdflandscape"
rotates the page, not the longtable (look at the page numbers and the test
in the table). What I need is to rotate the longtable, so it better fits
with my data. Nevertheless, I thank you for your help.

Should this be reported as a desired feature? Or would it be a very complex
task to include in this developing cycle?

Regards,
