I just want to select certain pages in a document and set them to landscape orientation. There are alot of web pages on this topic. None of them are of any use to me: my MS Word (2016 for Mac OSX) has neither a Page Setup Dialog Box Launcher nor a Page Setup Tab. Can anyone tell me how to do this? Thanks.

I want to select certain pages in a document and set them to landscape orientation

My MS Word (2016 for Mac OSX) has neither a Page Setup Dialog Box Launcher nor a Page Setup Tab

You can get to the Page Setup dialog from Menu Bar > Format > Document > Layout > Page Setup.

See below for detailed instructions.


Change the orientation for specific pages

  1. Select all the text on the pages you want to change.

    Tip: To change the orientation for all pages after the cursor, instead of selecting text, click where you want to start the new page orientation. On the Format menu, click Document, click Page Setup, select the orientation you want, and then click OK. Next to Apply to, click This point forward.

  2. On the Format menu, click Document.

  3. Click Page Setup at the bottom of the dialog box.

  4. Next to Orientation, click the orientation you want, and then click OK.

  5. Next to Apply to, click Selected text, and then click OK.

  • Thank you! BTW, on my MS Word, there is no dropdown arrow below the Orientation button. But your first answer works great! – bob.sacamento Jan 24 '17 at 15:10
