    Hi,

    I have a 2-page InDesign CS3 document and want one page to be portrait (default) and the other landscape. Does anybody know how to do this?

    Looking forward to hearing your replies, regards,

    Alex

    Orientation really applies to the paper not the page. Rotate the table or figure.

    I see. My first page is very text-heavy so needs to be portrait. My second page is a wide table so needs to be landscape.

    Is there no way that I can make an individual page landscape? Or do all pages have to be the same orientation in the document?

    The only way I know of doing it is with this plug-in.

    Ouch - 59 Euros, not so sure, but thanks anyway. I think I'll just rotate my text for now, but my neck is starting to ache reading text at a 90 degree angle, thanks Adobe! Now I can understand why you'd want to rotate the screen with some of those annoying graphics for drivers for Windows that sit in the tray!

    You can rotate an entire page using the tool on the left bar that is an arrow making a circular movement if that helps.

    Your other alternative is to create a book file out of the two pages and then print the whole book as a single PDF.

    I've just done what you suggested and rotated my text and table. Thanks for your help.

    Glad to be of help, I'm pretty new to the whole InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop game myself.
