Section 7: Add a Landscape Section
By default, your document pages are in the portrait orientation. But there are times when you need to add content, such as a table or an image, which are best viewed on a landscape orientated page. Therefore, you may need to have a page in your document that is in the landscape orientation.
Continue to the next slide to learn how to add a landscape orientated page to your document.
To begin adding a landscape section, go to the Chapter One page that we worked on in the previous section. Place the cursor on the last line of that page, open the Page Layout ribbon, and then open the Breaks drop-down list.
If you are on an odd page number, then select the Even Page option. If you are on an even page number, then select the Odd Page option. In our document, Chapter One is on page 1, which is an odd number; therefore, we will select the Even Page option from the Breaks drop-down list.
After inserting the section break, you will now be on the new page – which in this case has now become page 2.
To ensure that the page numbering is working correctly, go down to the bottom of the next few pages to ensure that the page numbering continues on as expect to pages 3, 4, and so on.
Ensuring that the cursor is at the top of page 2, which is now the new section that we created, open the Page Layout ribbon, click on the Orientation button, and click on the Landscape option.
This page will now be in landscape. Note that you may need to adjust the margins for this landscape section.
With the cursor on page 2 – the landscape section – open the Page Layout ribbon, click on the Breaks button, and then click on the Next Page option.
This will create a new page – a second page in landscape orientation.
With cursor at the top of the new page – which is the second landscape orientated page, open the Insert ribbon, click on the Page Number button, and click on the Format Page Numbers… option. This will open the Page Number Format dialog box.
Select the ‘Continue from Previous section’ option, and then click on the OK button. This page should now be numbered as page 3.
With the cursor at the top of page 3, open the Page Layout ribbon, click on the Orientation button, and then select the Portrait option.
If you have followed all of the steps as described so far, page 1 will be portrait orientated, page 2 will be landscape orientated, and page 3 will be portrait orientated.
