Description peh 2016-09-05 16:39:35 UTC
When running pdftocairo with -paperw and -paperh arguments, these dimensioners are swapped when a PDF in landscape is given as input file. Thus, width becomes height and height becomes width.

This behavior seems strange, as -W and -H arguments passed when cropping a PDF in landscape mode are not swapped.

I suggest consistent behavior where -paperw and -paperh denote the width and height of the output file, respectively (and not vice versa).

This change was made in poppler-0.38.
