"portrait:y" (or just leaving it out entirely) gives landscape in combo with "paper:ledger". With no "paper" option (defaults to A4), or with "A4", "letter" or "legal", "portrait:n" behaves as expected.

      This is actually documented. If you look carefully under :help letter
      (or :help a4), you'll see that "ledger" is defined as 17 inch wide by 11
      inch tall. Paper sheets the same size, but taller than wide (i.e. 11x17
      instead) are called "tabloid".

      Best regards,
      Keep in mind always the two constant Laws of Frisbee:
      (1) The most powerful force in the world is that of a disc
      straining to land under a car, just out of reach (this
      force is technically termed "car suck").
      (2) Never precede any maneuver by a comment more predictive
      than "Watch this!"
