Hello zolf,

at the spot in the document where you want to start the landscape page, click Page Layout - Breaks - and select "next page" from the section break list. Repeat the steps to insert a second section break. Then click between the section breaks and change the page orientation (Page Layout - Orientation drop down).

This will change the paper orientation just for the section.

You can see the section breaks when you show paragraph marks with the paragraph icon on the home ribbon.

Follow the below steps
·         First you’ll need to select the text on the page which lay-out you want to change

·         Then go to the tab Page Layout

·         Then select Margins

·         And select Custom Margins

·         Now on the Margins tab select Landscape

·         And change the Apply to value to Selected text

sreedhar2u,

this will set the whole document to landscape. To change a single page's orientation, you need to insert a section break for each orientation change.

sreedhar2u,

I missed the "selected text" bit, sorry. This is another way to insert section breaks. Just as I described above, just more automated. Good tip.

cheers, teylyn
