Put a targeted page in landscape with Office Word

Got some text entered, want to change the orientation of a single page but don't know how? This article will help you to go about putting a targeted page in landscape.

By opening a new document in Word, this is by default in portrait mode. But you can choose to put it either entirely or partially in landscape mode.

Put a single page in landscape mode with Word

To change the orientation and put a focused page in landscape, open your document in Word. Hover the cursor to the end of the page before the one you want to orient differently from the rest of the document.

Pointing the cursor before the targeted page

That is, if the page to orient in landscape mode is page number 10, place the cursor at the end of the page 9, as in the image above. After placing the cursor at the specified location, go to the tab LAYOUT. While you're at it, don't select any of the options in front of your eyes.

Take a look, in the layout tab there is a small, almost invisible button that allows you to have the full range of layout options.

Layout tab

The small button is pointed with a Red Arrow in the layout tab. Click on it, you will find yourself in front of a dialog box with more layout options.

Landscape mode selection

The image above shows the full menu of layout options. Upon opening it, select “Landscape” among the two orientations. Then go to the bottom of the menu and specify if you want to apply this to the whole document or not.

As you are targeting a single page, scroll down and choose “From this point” and then do OK to close the menu.

Targeted page and rest of the document in landscape mode

As you can see, the page 10 is now in landscape mode. However, there is one thing wrong: everything else in the document turns into landscape mode. But that's not what you wanted to do! Don't be worried, it's part of the process.

Back to portrait mode

Once the page has been targeted in landscape, we are now going to put the rest of the document back in portrait mode.

As we preferred to target the page alone 10, go to the end of your page (10) and repeat the operation. Point the cursor at the end of the page 10.

Document in landscape mode

As you can see in the image above, the cursor is pointed at the end of the page 10. That is to say, now we are going to make the page 11 and the rest of the document goes into mode portrait, while the page 10 it (and it alone) will remain in landscape mode.

Is the cursor still at the end of page 10? Double check, then go once more to the tab LAYOUT. Click our little button like the following picture.

Layout tab

Once again there is the menu with the full range of layout options presented to you:

Selection of portrait mode

This is to put the rest of the document back in portrait mode. Then select “Portrait” as in the image and once again go to the bottom of the menu and select “From this point” and made OK.

rest of the document put back in portrait mode

That's it, the rest of your document is back in portrait mode. When it comes to putting a targeted page in landscape, you can redo the operation as much as you want to change the orientation of several of your pages.
