# Typography of sideways figure [closed]

Since my figure is too wide to fit the layout, I rotate it using sidewaysfigure environment from rotating package. I'd like to clear out some typographical issues with respect to international and/or Czech typographical norms or conventions.

• Should the caption of the figure also be rotated (as sidewaysfigure does)? I assume it should.
• What about page number? Should it be put sideways or not or should it disappear completely since this is a special page?

Since this question may be off-topic as suggested in comments, I asked also on Graphic Design SE: https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/35583/typography-of-sideways-figure

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

• "This question does not fall within the scope of TeX, LaTeX or related typesetting systems as defined in the help center." – Martin Schröder, Joseph Wright
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

• Ahoj! :) I'm afraid that this question is off-topic since it doesn't ask how to do something, rather it asks what to typeset, and it is therefore not directly related to the TeX world. As for my opinion, I usually don't rotate the caption, and I wouldn't remove the page number, as far as scientific publications are concerned. – yo' Jul 8 '14 at 9:06
• @tohecz Ahoj :-) I viewed the questiong tightly connected to typesetting in TeX. Also in a certain way I know \emph{what} to typeset – I want to put my figure to the document – but I don't know \emph{how} to resolve the problem it doesn't fit into the layout. If the question if off-topic, where to put it? I couldn't find typography group on SE. – user87690 Jul 8 '14 at 9:23

• As you've asked on GraphicDesign, I've simply closed here. I could have migrated the question, but there's little point as they'll just merge with the one there! – Joseph Wright Jul 9 '14 at 12:20
