Create and work with documents that contain multiple page orientations in Google Docs
Quick launch summary
Google has made it easier to create and work with documents that require multiple page orientations in Google Docs.
For documents created in Google Docs, you can now change the page orientation on a per-section basis. This will allow you to make room for wider content such as tables and images that can benefit from extra horizontal space. You’ll also be able to edit, import, and export Microsoft Word documents that contain both portrait and landscape oriented pages.
Why it’s important
Google knows it’s important that your files and documents look consistent no matter the application you use. They hope these improvements make it easier for you to create and share rich documents that contain wide tables, charts, diagrams, and images.
