I believe you mean landscape.
Yes, sorry, my error

Shouldn't those be ``true in''?
Yes, probably -- but actually "truein" seems to 'work' --that
is, do what's intended, and not produce an error -- both in
TeXShop and in Textures under Classic.
You need to manually specify the physical pdf size, by adding
\pdfpagewidth=10 true in
\pdfpageheight=7 true in
at the top of your file.
Good, thanks (and any other pdftex stuff?)
And shouldn't you specify a magstep factor
instead of using ``N'' there?
Meant to imply that N would be set to appropriate
(integer) values. Thought about writing something
like \magstep<N> or \magstep[N], but decided
that might be just as confusing.
