# Including pdfpages renders rotated RevTeX 4.1 pdfLaTex output

This happened when I updated MikTeX to the latest version (as of time of this post) and tried the workaround regarding adding pdf pages to RevTeX documents. Running the code below produced text rotated by 90 degrees while commenting out the line which includes the pdfpages packages produces regularly positioned text. Note that the page number was not rotated. Can anyone reproduce this and what is the cause of this?

\documentclass[english]{revtex4-1}
\usepackage{pdfpages}  % Including PDF
\makeatother
\usepackage{babel}
\begin{document}

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet...

\end{document}

• \documentclass{revtex4-1}\usepackage{pdfpages}\useepackage{blindtext}\begin{document}\blindtext\end{document} would be enough as an MWE. As you have written in another post, the maintainers of revtex4-1 do not provide compatiblity to pdfpages. Anyhow, I put a bounty here, as Dennis is issueing the same problem. – LaRiFaRi Aug 15 '16 at 14:16

The same happen with

\documentclass{revtex4-1}
\usepackage{lscape}

\begin{document}
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet...
\end{document}


because revtex4-1 redefine the output routine: \@outputpage we need to don't rotate the outputbox. A quick fix is

\documentclass{revtex4-1}
\usepackage{pdfpages}

\makeatletter
\AtBeginDocument{\let\LS@rot\@undefined}
\makeatother

\begin{document}
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet...
\end{document}


Edit With the help of etoolbox package if we really need to use lscape we can do

\documentclass{revtex4-1}

\usepackage{pdfpages}
\usepackage{etoolbox}

\makeatletter
