I want to change the page orientation of one particular page in my LibreOffice document. I have followed the instructions given on the LibreOffice wiki, specifically
To change the page orientation for all pages that share the same page style, you first need a page style, then apply that style:
- Choose Format - Styles and Formatting.
- Click the Page Styles icon.
- Right-click a page style and choose New. The new page style initially gets all properties of the selected page style.
- On the Organizer tab page, type a name for the page style in the Name box, for example "My Landscape".
- In the Next Style box, select the page style that you want to apply to the next page that follows a page with the new style. See
- the section about the scope of page styles at the end of this help page.
- Click the Page tab.
- Under Paper format, select “Portrait” or “Landscape”.
- Click OK.
Following the same instructions multiple times, sometimes the first page of my document is rotated, sometimes there is no apparent effect. I am unable to rotate a page in the middle of the document (in this case, page 98).
I want to change the page orientation, because I have one table that should be printed in landscape format, while all other tables and text should be printed in portrait format.
What is the correct way to apply a different page orientation to a page in my document that isn't the first page of the document?
A different option would be to rotate the table (i.e. the text would be rotated too) and keeping the page orientation in portrait mode, if changing the page orientation would appear impossible.
Note: this is neither a question about printing not about working with PDF's; this is about on-screen display within LibreOffice.
Currently, I'm using LibreOffice 184.108.40.206 on Mac OS X and LibreOffice 220.127.116.11 on Windows.
