perhaps this is more of an enhancement (?), but currently PNG files
are output with 90° counterclockwise rotation, if the paper is in a

png-landscape.ly In case it be important: Ubuntu 14.04, 64-bit.

Yours, Simon

\version "2.19.28"
\paper { #(set-paper-size "a10" 'landscape) }
\header { tagline = ##f }
\markup "orientation"
Well, why would you select landscape orientation if you don't want it?
Are you sure you don't actually mean

\paper { #(set-paper-size "a10landscape") }

namely just a landscape paper format but no landscape orientation?

Astounding. I had never heard of that distinction in LilyPond before, but you’re right. So it was just the confusion of a user, who is used to landscape documents being rotated on the way to the printer rather than at the creation of the document, and puzzled that this is behaving different for PNG than for PDF.

Thanks, Simon
