Page layout of word

I have a 2 paged document and would like the first page to be in portrait, the second to be in landscape. Please could you assist?

RE: page layout of word

Hi Angela

Thank you for your question.

Click at the end of the text that will conclude page 1.

From the same Page Layout ribbon, click the small arrow in the lower right corner of the Page Setup group. This will open Page Setup.

On the Margins tab choose Landscape orientation

At the bottom of the page set the "Apply to" drop down to show "From this point forward" and choose OK

Word will insert a next page section break and change the orientation of your document to Landscape from that point.

Repeat the process later in your document, choosing Portrait orientation to set back to a portrait layout.

I hope this helps - do let me know if you have any further questions.

Kind regards,

Word tip:

What use is the Status Bar in Word 2010

Do you know what the status bar is used for in Word 2010?

The Status Bar provides information about the current document including:

Page number in document: indicates number of pages in the document the number of the current page (i.e. the page in which the cursor is located at that point in time)

Number of words in document: shows the total number of words used in the current document. If you want to know how many words there are in a section, then highlight that section and look at the word count again.
