When you create folios and articles for DPS, what are your options?
Orientation — Vertical, Horizontal, or Both?
You can create portrait-only, landscape-only, or dual-orientation folios. Within a folio, you cannot mix and match orientation types, such as a horizontal-only and dual-orientation articles. For single-orientation folios, the layouts do not change when the customer rotates the iPad or iPhone.
Avoid creating dual-orientation folios unless you have a compelling reason to do so.
Martha Stewart Living creates portrait-only folios. National Geographic creates landscape-only folios.
One major advantage to portrait-only or landscape-only folios is that you have to create only one design. If you have a printed magazine, converting the layout to a 768×1024 page size isn’t nearly as difficult as converting it to both a 768×1024 and 1024×768 page size. Also, some users find the changing layout to be distracting when the device is tilted slightly.
Note: With portrait-only folios, iOS users can rotate the device to play a full-screen video in landscape.
