Page setup - strange choice of format

For some strange reason, Data Studio uses a page size which only works well with a portrait format monitor, and there does not appear to be a way to change that. Given that the only way to use Data Studio as it is intended is from within a browser - the only way to distribute the outcome is to print, or Print to PDF (where the format is OK) - and almost all screens, as well as tv monitors used for dashboards etc are in landscape, this seems really strange. I would say that the default format should be landscape, with an option to use portrait in case the outcome is intended to print (or distributed as PDF).
