Combine Portrait and Landscape Pages in a Word 13 Document

Many times, in a Word Document, we come to the point where we want to format the document mostly in Portrait Mode, but we also need a couple of pages or more to be formatted in Landscape Mode. In this post, I will describe how we can combine both Portrait and Landscape Pages in a Word 13 document. All we have to do is to follow the steps below.

First, we must select the Page Layout tab and then from the area of the ribbon named Page Setup, we locate the command Breaks as shown below and select it. From the drop down menu that appears, we locate the area named Section Breaks and then select the command Next Page. By selecting the command Next Page, we insert a section break and start the new section on the next page.

Breaks - Next Page

Once Next Page Section Break is inserted the rest of the text is moved down to the Next Page as we can see in the image below.

The next step is to move our cursor to the beginning of the next page that we want to change the Orientation, and then we make sure that the Page Layout tab is selected and from the area of the ribbon named Page Setup we select the command Orientation as shown below. Once the Orientation command is selected from the drop down menu that appears, we select the command Landscape.

Orientation - Landscape

Straight away, the Orientation of the following page, where we had our cursor has changed its Orientation to Landscape. In the image below, I have followed the same procedure in order to have a combination of Portrait and Landscape pages.
