From user ML:

Trinity 14.0.6 preliminary.
Don't know if it is a feature of ksnapshot or a misconfiguration
somewhere from me, but it is getting absolutely annoying what happens.
I have a website, a document or whatsoever on my screen in full
A4-papersize. Now I want a printout of a small part of it. Call
ksnapshot, choose "region" "new snapshot" and then draw a border around
the desired part. Press "print" and then print it. Bull... I get a
print in landscape, useless and even worse not even the original layout
reappears.
Stop ksnapshot, restart it and same procedure with again the same
miserable result.
Stop, restart, same procedure but no actual printing, instead I look
into the printer properties. And there, big surprise, landscape was
marked as to be printed BUT all 4 orientations were grayed out, so I
couldn't change that.
Checked in tdeprint the printersettings, nothing wrong, in "instances"
"settings" all 4 orientations were available and portrait was marked as
to be applied in the default printer.
Checked kprinter and of course the settings of tdeprint were there also
valid.
But then I had an idea. If I selected in ksnapshot a larger part of the
screen, say more than half A4, what would happen?
Yes, some ugly words from me and there it was: portrait was marked but
still all 4 possibilities grayed out. 
So ksnapshot decides how it wants to print and doesn't leave the user a
chance to get a result, that he wants. Utterly bull....
Any suggestion, where I could look to alter this behaviour?

Problem is confirmed.
