Having Both Landscape and Portrait Pages in the Same Word Document: How to Do It

The page layout of your Word document, usually, is either in Portrait (vertical sort of) or Landscape (horizontal so to say) format. However, there could be instances when yo want to combine both formats in a single document. The how to do it is shown in three steps below:

Step 1: Open the Microsoft Word document, place your cursor at the start of the page that you want to change to landscape or portrait.

Step 2: Select PAGE LAYOUT, then Breaks, then Next Page to place a section break where you had your cursor.

Step 3: While ensuring your cursor is still at the start of that page, go to the Orientation option. Select Landscape, and you’ll notice how everything after our section break has changed to horizontal.

All you have to do now is go to the next page, insert another break, change the orientation back to portrait, and the pages after will be portrait.

Repeat the same steps if your document is originally in landscape and you need to insert portrait in between.
