# CJKvert affecting all CJK in document

My document has been compiling very well (thanks in no small part to Tex SX!), but I seem to have hit a snag. I added a more complicated dedication to the beginning of my thesis (using \dedication \input{foo.tex}). In the dedication I have some Chinese that I wanted to display vertically. I got that to work using the CJKvert package.

However, now it seems that all of my Chinese text is displaying rotated! I think this MWE shows the problem:

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{CJKutf8, CJKspace}
\usepackage[usebaselinestretch]{CJKvert}
\usepackage{rotating}

\begin{document}

\begin{center}
\vspace*{-2cm}
\parbox[c][5em][c]{15cm}{%
\small In order to properly understand the big picture, we should fear becoming mentally clouded and obsessed with one small section of truth. \\%
\\%
Chapter 21 Dispelling Obsession'' \\%
The \emph{Xunzi} \\ \\ \\ \\ \\ \\
}
\vspace*{3cm}
\begin{turn}{-90}
\parbox[c][3cm][c]{24em}{%
\begin{CJK}{UTF8}{gbsn}\CJKvert\CJKtilde\fontsize{12pt}{14pt}荀子\\%

\begin{CJK}{UTF8}{bkai}\CJKvert\CJKtilde\fontsize{18pt}{20pt}凡人之患，蔽于一曲，而闇于大理。\end{CJK}
}
\end{turn}
\parbox[c][5em][c]{15cm}{To my Cousin's Brother's\\%
Flatmate.
}
\end{center}

\chapter{Some Chapter Title}

The modern name of the People's Republic of China in Chinese remains
\emph{Zhongguo} {[}\begin{CJK}{UTF8}{gbsn}中国\end{CJK}{]}
which translates most directly as central state'' or in literary
usage middle kingdom.''

\end{document}


Do I need to \renewcommand or some such after the dedication?

Ps. Please ignore the gross use of \\ to get the spacing right. I am hardly concerned about that ATM.

EDIT 1: I know this can perhaps be done more easily with xetex/xelatex and xeCJK, but that would break all of the rest of my Chinese, causing a great deal of recoding.

• @cfr Sry bout that. It should be fixed now. – charles Aug 6 '14 at 22:55

I believe that you just need to switch back to horizontal but perhaps I have missed something...

\chapter{Some Chapter Title}

The modern name of the People's Republic of China in Chinese remains
\emph{Zhongguo} {[}\begin{CJK}{UTF8}{gbsn}\CJKhorz中国\end{CJK}{]}
which translates most directly as central state'' or in literary
usage middle kingdom.''

\end{document}


Is this right? (Bear in mind that I have no idea what it should look like.)

• Yes, that's what it should look like. Didn't know about \CJKhorz but guess it makes sense. Will report back asap. – charles Aug 7 '14 at 0:04
• That seems to work for the whole document, though I had to put it in the master.tex document after the \dedication but before the next bit of \frontmatter and all subsequent \input{} files. – charles Aug 7 '14 at 0:16
• I wasn't sure if it needed to be within the CJK environment so I echoed the way you'd used \CJKvert. Guessing really... ;). – cfr Aug 7 '14 at 1:46
