yes, that was wrong, I found out, but changing it did not change the

yes, but then there should be displayed a page of a width that is
greater than the height. this is not the case in my case...
and I tried also this:
in all af these 3 cases preview (together with texshop) opens a white
page (seems to be a4). the page number is located at the bottom of a
region corresponding to an a6paper, but within an a4-paper, that is:
the page number is located in the upper third of the displayed white
region which I assume to be the paper form that preview uses.
so, what can I do?
