How to Put One Page As Landscape & Maintain the Page Numbers in Word 2007
Microsoft Word enables users to prepare large documents that can be formatted in chapters and select pages that have a different page orientation or contain columns. After you set up a main header and footer that includes page numbers for your document, the setting automatically applies to defined sections unless you create section-specific headers, footers and pagination. Use the "Insert" function to add a section break to designate parts of your document with unique formatting needs such as a landscape orientation. Insert a section break at the end of the desired page to resume default formatting.
Place the cursor at the start of the desired page, select "Break" under "Insert" in the top menu bar and select the option,"Section Break (Next Page)."
Place the cursor at the end of the desired page, select "Break" under "Insert" in the top menu bar and select the option, "Section Break (Next Page)."
Place the cursor at any point in the text for the desired page and select "Page Setup" under "File" in the top menu bar.
Select "Document" under "Format" in the top menu bar and click the "Layout" tab.
Select the option, "This section" from the drop-down list next to the option, "Apply to."
Click the "Page Setup" button and select the icon for landscape orientation.
Click the "OK" button twice.
Tips & Warnings
- If using Word 2007, the options selected in steps 4 to 7 are accessed in the "Page Setup" group under the "Page Layout" tab in the top menu bar.
- Select "Page Layout" under "View" in the top menu bar to review the headers and footers on the pages to confirm that the headers and page numbers haven't changed.
