Dear all,

I would like to set-up a different page format (landscape) in my document
holding the other pages in the same document in Portrait. How can I do this?

Thanks in advance,
Stijn

Unfortunately it can't be done the same way you can in Word. You create a
separate publication with the different orientation. You can either end up
with two files or you could "select all", group, copy, paste the original
document, and then rotate it to suit. That's what I would do because I
wouldn't want to deal with two files but that's just my preference. You may
not want to copy, group, paste, rotate, and do the hokey-pokey. :)

This is correct. Publisher does not support sectioning publications the
way Word does; a publication's page format applies to the whole
document.

There is, however, a little-known "hack-around" using Publisher features
that will let you have the EFFECT you desire; it is not often used or
discussed because it makes things harder to work with. Essentially,
rotate all pictures and drawings by 90° clockwise (so that the top of
the picture is to the right); for text boxes, FORMAT > TEXT BOX > select
the Text Box tab, and check the checkbox that says "Rotate text within
AutoShape by 90°". The hack-around also works in Publisher 2010, though
the access path is slightly different (Publisher 2010 has the Ribbon
interface).
