Configuring report to be landscape

I have a dashboard that I use when checking if a server is compliant.  It looks normal in the dashboard but when I export it as a PDF the last column gets moved to a new page.  I found this in ./etc/system/bin/pdfgen_endpoint.py

DEFAULT_PAPER_ORIENTATION = 'portrait'

What I can't find is a way of overriding the default to change it to landscape.  Does such a file exist?  If not, beyond changing the code, any ideas on how to get a landscape report so the final column will be on the same page?

TIA

Joe

I would change the code since I know I have to maintain any future updates to that file myself and that it might break how other reports display in a PDF.

I would also check out the "betterpdf" app in splunkbase (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/7171).
