The illustration below shows a three page document in which the
first and thrid pages are in portrait orientation and the
second (middle) page is in landscape orientation.
Portrait orientation = normal - longest
side of page is vertical (upright)
Landscape orientation = page is laying
on it side, shortest side of page is upright.
Changing the orientation of a page is easy. You must
click on File on the main menu and then select Page Setup.
This will bring up the Page Setup controls as in the
Choose the orientation you want where the red circle
on the left shows. You can make this page orientation effective
for the 'whole document', 'this point forward" or 'this section'
by changing the control in the red circle on the right of the page
setup box (above).
If you select 'this point forward', Microsoft Word
will insert a section break (wherever your cursor is, so be careful)
and the next page in your document will adopt the orientation
desired. Therefore, to achieve the example at the top of this page,
you would carry out this procedure once with your cursor on the
bottom line of the first page and then once with your cursor at
the bottom of the second page.
The illustration below shows another method which
involves putting in section breaks manually yourself.
In this method you must put in both section breaks
first, and then you click anywhere on the second page and change
(through page setup) the orientation of the second page.
