Page orientation in Word

Post by Morganna » Tue Jan 14, 2020 9:57 pm

Can anyone advise, please?

I am putting together some appendices in Word, and I would like some of them to be landscape and others portrait, but for them all to form a continuous document.

I have formatted the first two pages, which are both landscape (in columns) and want the next ones to be portrait, but when I change the orientation on the portrait page, the whole document changes.

Is it possible to mix and match, or does the whole document have to be the same? If it's possible to box and cox, how do I do it, wise ones? TIA

You’re using a section break instead of a page break, right? It should work with the section break. Use one at the start of the new orientation section and one at the end.

You can mix and match but you’ll need to insert section breaks and set the orientation for each section.

Thanks, I'll give that a go. I was using page break, I think.

Thanks, both.
