Looks like 3.6.4 is the end of the 3.6.x series. So I'm changing the release to "dev", the status to "fixed", and closing this report.

I've attached plots produced with 3.6.4 and the developers sources (default branch). The default branch appears to have fixed the problem. The version produced using 3.6.4 is "tall".

I've changed the "release" to 3.6.4. In the event there will be no 3.6.5, then this bug is already fixed.

Sorry for the confusion, but in 3.4.3 it only works if "orient landscape" is added before the saveas command (which should not be necessary of course).

The code works correctly in octave 3.4.3 by the way... so probably something is broken some release after that.

The following code should print a figure on a PDF and completely fill the page.
However, the papersize is set incorrectly. In Matlab the code works correctly by the way.

fplot(@sin,[0 1])
%get current size on screen
%set paper to same size
%place on right place of paper
set(gcf, 'PaperPositionMode', 'manual');
set(gcf, 'PaperPosition', [0 0 psz(1) psz(2)]);
pause(.2) %wait until the buffer is flushed
