Setting up Word 2007 to Print Portrait and Landscape Pages in the Same Document
Setting up a Word 2007 document to contain both portrait and landscape pages is a procedure involving Page Breaks and a little formatting of the pages using the Page Layout Menu. First, start a new document in Word 2007 and type in some text. Then, position the cursor at the end of that text and click on the PAGE LAYOUT tab on the Word 2007 Ribbon. Click on the arrow next to the BREAKS option under the PAGE SETUP portion of the Ribbon (see Figure 1) and click on PAGE. A new page should appear at the end of the document. This is the page that we will make into a landscape page.
Position the cursor back to where you first created the Page Break (just after the text you typed) and click on the Page Setup Dialog Box button at the bottom right of the PAGE SETUP section of the Ribbon. The Page Setup window will open (see Figure 2). Click on the picture of the LANDSCAPE page under the ORIENTATION section of the window. Then, under the PREVIEW section of that window, choose THIS POINT FORWARD from the APPLY TO drop down menu. Click OK and the second page in your Word document is now in landscape orientation.
Now insert your text, table, image, or chart on the new landscape page. Then, position the cursor to a line just after whatever you just put on the landscape page. Insert a second PAGE BREAK at that position using the same procedure as above (see Figure 1).
Now you should have three pages, the first is in portrait orientation and the second and third are landscape. Position your cursor just before the PAGE BREAK you just created on page 2 and click on the PAGE SETUP DIALOG BOX again (see Figure 2). Click on the picture of the PORTRAIT page under the ORIENTATION section of the window. Again, choose THIS POINT FORWARD from the APPLY TO drop down menu.
If all went well, you now have three pages in your document. The first page should be portrait, the second landscape, and the third portrait again (see Figure 3).
