Ok, this is an old tip, but one that definitely bears repeating as I get many, many inquiries on this subject. There are many times when you may need to know this. Suppose you are creating a handbook for machinery or you are writing a technical manual or article and you need to include schematics, charts, etc.
I find that that using both portrait and landscape orientation in the same document definitely helps accommodate large charts, graphs, photos, and diagrams. Using the same orientation will help to avoid creating an additional document to accommodate wider content in your document.
Follow the steps below to learn how:
- Select the pages or paragraphs that you would like to change to portrait or landscape orientation.
- Go to Page Layout | Page Setup.
- Click Margins and select Custom Margins.
- On the Margins tab, click Portrait or Landscape.
- In the Apply to list, choose Selected text.
Word will use section breaks to give your selected text their orientation. If you select a part of the text on a page, but not the entire page, Word will place the selected text on its own page and the surrounding text on separate pages.
