    Hi Guys,

    I'm 'trying' to write a report for a college assignment and am struggling a little!

    For a start, it looks like Pages doesn't have an option to create an organisation chart (unlike Office for mac). So I've created a chart in microsoft and have copied and pasted it into Pages.

    My next problem is that my organisation structure/ chart is very wide so it doesnt fit on the page in portrait view. Is there any way to have one page of a document in landscape and the rest in portrait?

    Sorry if this is a really noobish question. I am useless at word processing!

    I think you will want to rotate your chart 90 degrees so it fits in portrait orientation. Personally, I think a document with both landscape and portrait pages is annoying. You really can't print it that way, anyhow.

    BTW, you could have created your chart in Pages. It doesn't have a specific dedicated function as Word does apparently, but you can make up text boxes and connecting lines to your heart's content.

    Thanks for your input. In future I think I'll try Pages- even if it is a bit laborious. I ended up doing it on a PC in the end :(
