I followed this article to modify PLI control file and specific it in LPub, but it seems doesn't work, how can I use it correctly?
Are you sure that you are working with the pli.mpd file located in your LPub\extras folder?

Really? I don't know that file has to be put in that folder, I will try it.

I am using Mac LPub, there is no extras folder, what can I do?
I guess you'll have to wait for a Mac user here Wink

I tried to put pli.mpd file in that folder of my winxp, but no any result what I need, what can I do?
All I can say is that it works for me. Did you use a modified version of the pli.mpd provided with LPub, or did you create one from scratch?

As you can see, it works (right part was done with your pli.mpd).
One question: did you cleared assembly image cache (in tools menu)? otherwise you keep reusing old orientation again and again...
