Need help in page orientation?

Postby berty.L » Wed Dec 11, 2013 8:47 am

I have a document that has a lot of pages and all the pages are in portrait mode. Now I need to insert a new page in landscape mode in this document? Will it be possible? If yes, then how?
Thanks in advance. :)

Yes, it's possible. If you want to insert a landscape oriented page on your document, you need to create a page style with landscape page orientation. And to do that, you need to follow the steps given below:

1. In the Stylist, click on the Page Style button, right-click in the window and choose New.
2. In the Page Style dialog box, click on the Page tab.
3. Under Orientation, click on the Landscape radio button.
4. Specify other settings and click OK.

Now insert this new landscape-oriented page and to do that follow the steps given below:

1. Choose Insert > Manual Break.
2. Click on the Page break radio button.
3. Select the newly created landscape page style from the Style drop-down menu.
4. To get back to the portrait mode repeat the procedure.
Note: While repeating the same procedure, make sure you select the portrait page style in the 3rd step in which you would have selected landscape page style earlier.

Hope this would be helpful.
Regards. :D
