thanks Steve,
I first did a checkbox interface but this was simpler to manage.  
There's still things to do and a better interface is in the list.
For the PDF print sistem I would like to add informations under the  
image. That's where portrait or landscape is important. For normal  
image output dimensions are related to the viewport.
