Using LyX 1.6.5/MacTex-2009 my floating sideways figures only occupy half the page and the other half of the figure disappears off the left margin. I tried the rotfloat and rotating packages and they both give the same result.

The environment begins with \begin{sidewaysfigure}. The text is properly rotated but it just never gets past the half-way point of the page (along the short dimension in portrait).

Anyone have any ideas?

This example is compilable and works as expected:

Perhaps do it like this or post some concrete code.

You might also try isorot package, which worked for me better than rotating or pdflscape.
