I have a landscape pdf file that I try to send with sendfax. The
problem is that hylafax seem to chop my document to fit it in a

Anyone can send a landscape pdf???
All faxing is standardized on portrait page orientation. So if you
*really* want to send a letter page (21.59 X 27.94 cm portrait
oriented) in landscape orientation (27.94 X 21.59 cm) then you need to
specify a "page size" that matches that horizontal width (27.94 cm).
B4 is 25.01 cm and A3 is 29.70 cm horizontally. So, I would guess that
you'd need to specify 'sendfax -s a3' in order to send that letter page
in landscape orientation.
That said, you probably really don't want to actually send anything in
landscape orientation, and the better thing to do would be to put the
page into portrait orientation before submitting it. I suspect that
you'll need to specify page-orientation and page-size parameters to
that convert command.
