How To Apply Different Orientation In Specific Writer Page

This advanced Writer tutorial would explain how you can apply different orientation (portrait or landscape) in one or multiple pages of a LibreOffice Writer document.

In earlier tutorial I have explained how to apply portrait or landscape orientation in a LibreOffice Writer page. However, as per the previous tutorial same orientation is applied to all the pages in the document either landscape or portrait. This is how you can apply different orientation in different pages.

Steps to apply different orientation

  • Open a multi page Writer document
Target Document - Example
Target Document – Example
  • From the right toolbar, click styles and click Page Styles.
  • On the Page Style list, right click and click New.
New Page Style Menu
New Page Style Menu
  • In the new page style dialogue, go to Organizer tab.
  • Enter a name of your new Page Style. Select next style as Default style.
Page Style - Organizer
Page Style – Organizer
  • Go to Page tab, change Orientation as Landscape. Press Ok.
Page Style - Page
Page Style – Page
  • Click on the page in your Writer document whose orientation you want to be changed.
  • From the menu click Insert > More Breaks > Manual Break by putting the cursor at the beginning of the page (here I have chosen page#2 of the example document – yellow highlighted).
Insert Manual Break
Insert Manual Break
  • In the next window, Select Page Break and choose style as the style you have just created in above step.
Insert Manual Break - Window
Insert Manual Break – Window
  • Now you would see, the current page (in this example – Page #2) have been converted to landscape but other pages are remained in portrait format.
