Print always defaults to Portrait -Why?

We have both Filemaker 5.5 and 7 in our network. I'm converting some of the files over to 7, but things are not going too smoothly. Today's problem is the page setup. In 5.5, the page orientation was remembered for each layout. In 7, all layouts default to portrait. If I set it for landscape, print and then close the db, the next time I open it, it will be back to portrait. Anyone else see this? BTW we have 7.0v2 on all the computers. It's a global problem with FM7.

The default orientation has always been whatever was last set in the Print Setup for each terminal. If you only change it when printing, it won't stick. Also, orientation is not tied to a layout. This is why it's almost always a good idea to have a Print Setup [No dialog, Restore] step in every script where you want to preview or print. None of this has changed in v. 7 as far as I can tell.
