comment Fancyheader cfoot overlaps with main content
I'm still confused. If we use includefoot then the footer becomes part of the text body, and the footer will be above the margin. In that case, what is the meaning of footskip? It is supposed to be "the vertical length between the bottom of the text area and the bottom of the area reserved for footers". But if we include the footer into the text area, then there is no such thing as "area reserved for footers below the text area". Then what does it mean? :-(

Also found this figure that explains margings, footers headers and how they are related. tex.stackexchange.com/questions/132170/…

Oh, I see now! cfoot does not calculate the height of the footer at all. I have to set it manually. Is that right?

@harnish-kumar: Please post "includefoot" and possibly "includehead" as a soltion. By adding that one thing to my document, everything seems to be fine.

@cfr: Are you saying that the footer is rendered on the margin? I thought that the footer is ABOVE the margin.

I was experimenting some more, and it seems that adding an invisible (zero point high) horizontal rule to the top of the cfoot solves the problem: \cfoot{\rule{0.5\textwidth}{0pt} but I don't understand why!

Shouldn't cfoot automatically resize the footer to fit the contents? Also I don't understand how it is related to the margins. I just tried, and the same problem can be reproduced with different margin settings (also with different paper sizes). Just I have to add / remove some rows to the table to make it appear. One thing is sure: it is NEVER bad if I put plain text into the document. Already tried with many pages of lorem lipsum. It is clearly related to the longtabu plus the cfoot together.

\thispagestyle{empty} will also supress footnotes. How to disable fancy header, but keep footnotes?

comment How to change certain pages into landscape/portrait mode
The lscape and the rotating packages do not work together with the watermark package. fancyhdr cfoot size is not changing when the page is rotated. \textwidth is not changed when the page is rotated. Etc. So rotating is not a good solution. There should be a way to switch between landscape and portrait mode - at least PDF allows that so there should be a way to do it when the output is rendered as PDF. Anybody knows the correct answer?
