Microsoft Word/headers and footers in landscape sections


I have a document (a solutions manual for a textbook) with both portrait and landscape sections and am using headers and footers.  I want to print the headers and footers on the landscape pages in portrait orientation so the entire book has the same header and footer look, regardless of the orientation of the main text on the page.

Charles - by Portrait orientation I am assuming you are referring to the margins of the document footers.  That you want them consistent on each page regardless of the orientation.

To do this you will still have to insert Breaks > Page Break sections before and after the orientation change..

Hopefully the following will help.

I did not see what version of Word you are using.
