Hi Monlaw,
Conjugate simply threads over a matrix, i.e. each element is conjugated.
However, dealing with matrices one usually needs the conjugated
transpose -> Conjugate[Transpose[m]] .

Perhaps I do not understand that question right, but if you select File
-> PrintingSettings, you can change the PageSetup to Landscape and
select "Print multiple pages for wide cells" from PrintingOptions.

Hope this helps,
