How can I use landscape and portrait layout for different pages in the same Word document?

LolaBelle

When I try to insert a landscape page for a report with the other pages in portrait layout, it changes everything to landscape or the pagination gets all messed up. What’s the right way to insert these pages in Word?

You can do it, but Microsoft could have made it easier to figure out. Here is a guide for you:

Jack has a good answer. If Microsoft Office is giving you headaches, you might want to consider LibreOffice instead. It does a lot of what MS Office does, but it's free and open source.
