#Office365Challenge – Single Page Orientation in Word – so normally every page in Word is Portrait right?! Wrong! Maybe one of your pages has illustrations or tables which are too wide for a normal portrait page. So here goes for explaining how to change a single page on your Word document – to have a different page orientation (Portrait / Landscape).

Tools: Microsoft Word
Description: Having different page orientations for different pages in Word

So let’s tell no lies, this is where Word get’s as complex as jQuery in SharePoint for me. But for you – I kill the bull. So let’s do this and maybe learn something in the process.

I have a word document with multiple pages, one of them has a big table which is too wide for a portrait page. Below are the steps for changing that single page to Landscape:
On the specific page you would like to change to Landscape, select the place where you would like to change (1), click on Page Layouts (2), Page Breaks (3), Continuous (4). This will change the Page Orientation to be the same for all pages that follow:
PageOrientation1

Once this is done – you have to set the orientation: Select the place in the document (1), click on Page Layout (2), Orientation (3), then on Landscape (4):
PageOrientation2

Keep in mind that for the next page which will be portrait, you have to follow all the above steps again, or it will stay on Landscape.

There you go!!

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.

Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
