How to Rotate From Landscape to Portrait in Visio

In previous versions of Microsoft Visio you could drag pages to rotate them. This is no longer the case in Visio 2013 where you must instead use the Orientation button to rotate a page. The Orientation button launches a drop-down menu that enables you switch a page back and forth between landscape and portrait orientations.
