Apologies for what might seem like quite a straightforward question icon_smile.gif

I have a lengthy document to translate and have to keep to the layout of the source document (which I only have as a hard copy). Some pages are in landscape and some in portrait. Is there any straightforward method of saving different page layouts in the same Word document?

Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide!

Use section breaks to keep one document Nov 20, 2002

The link below (from Microsoft) explains it quite well...

Try with "Sections" Nov 20, 2002

When you have to switch from portrait to landscape, you should \"break\" your document with the following command:

Insert -> Break -> Section Break Types -> Next page.

Then, in the page belonging to the new section, choose File -> Page Setup -> and define your layout, then, before clicking OK, select \"Apply to: This section\" (Usually it reads \"Apply to: Whole Document\").


This should work perfectly but, if you are still experiencing problems, I strongly recommend to create different documents.

Sections. Nov 20, 2002

Hi Jana,

You may apply different page layout to different sections of the document. To divide a document into sections go to Insert menu and choose Page break and then section break. Then, you can apply any layout to a selected section.

Use sections in one documet Nov 20, 2002

Refer to Word help, see how a section is to be inserted, and then, afert inserting a new section, format this as needed.

You can keep foot- and headnotes as well, or define new for landscape pages.

Landscape pages do not need to have same margins as usuall pages.


Try to look in Microsoft help. Even if many people mean, Microsoft programs are not as good, their help files are good IMO.

You can simply ask a question \"Inserting a section\", or \"formating a document with portrait and landscape pages\". You will see, you will get quite good tips.
