How to change orientation of one page in word?
Within some particular word documents, you have to apply different page orientation to one page only. This article will show you the following tricky ways for changing orientation of one page in word.
For understanding this tricky way better, I will take the following documents as an example to show you how I can change the orientation in page 2.
Step 1: Click Page Layout, and go to the Breaks to insert section break Next Page at the end of page 1 and page 2 as follows.
Step 2: Put the cursor on page 2 and click Page Layout > Orientation > Landscape.
Now the page 2 has been changed to orientation landscape. See screenshot:
Note: If you do not insert section break in the document, it will change the orientation of the whole document after clicking Landscape.

To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 1 years agoThis solution causes issues. The key one being that if you use a cover page with a unique header/footer, every time you change page orientation within the document, word will treat the change in orientation as a "Next Page" break and the page will have the header/footer from the cover page (0) yet because of the orientation change, the header/footer are misformatted.
Sure, it's easy enough to force a correct page number, but you can't stop Word from pulling that coverpage header/footer and inserting it in the middle of your doc. Word is just such garbage for reasons like this. Their "solutions" are really hacky workarounds that sorta kinda accomplish what you want, some of the time. Bah! Get LibreOffice.
