How to Include Both Landscape and Portrait Pages in the Same Word Document for Mac

< 1 minute read

Normally, pages in a Word document have either a portrait or a landscape orientation. You might think that you can’t mix and match these two orientations in the same document, but you can indeed have both–here’s how.

  1. In a Microsoft Word document, place your cursor at the start of the page that you want to change to landscape.
  2. Select Layout > Breaks > Next Page to place a section break where you had your cursor.
  3. Make sure your cursor is still at the start of that page, and go to the Orientation option. Select landscape, and you’ll notice how everything after our section break has changed to horizontal.
  4. All you have to do now is go to the next page, insert another break, change the orientation back to portrait, and there you have it!
