Hi Leah, I assume that you want a rotated (landscape) page, with headers and footers that cosmetically appear "rotated" on the left and right side of the rotate page, but a "right reading" body column which you can edit when viewing body pages.
Try this: == View=>Master Pages == Special=>Add Master Page == Name the Page and choose which existing Master Page to copy (e.g. right or left) == Format=>Customize Layout=>Rotate Page Clockwise (You now have a rotated page with heades and footers where you wish them) == Use the drawing tools to carefully draw a red box exactly over the body column == Select the body column (control click) on master page and Graphics=>Rotate=>Counterclockwise == Carefully resize and reposition Body Column so that it is exactly on top of the red box you drew. == Select the red box and delete it == NOTE: you now have a landscape page with "rotated" vertical headers and footers on either side of the page. == View Body Page == Create a blank paragraph and give it a page break to start a new page == Format=>Page Layout=>Master Page Usage and choose your new master page style from () Custom == you have a landscape page (with sideheads) and headers/footers where you want them == create a table that is wider than the non-head area of the sidehead, and your table will fill the width of the page. == if you wish to have the master page style paginate with the table, you may wish to create a special paragraph style for starting landscape pages, and then map that paragraph style to your new master page. Look up "Assigning master pages to body pages containing paragraph tags" in FrameMaker's online help. I hope this helped, and that my assumptions were correct in what you were trying to achieve.

I also want the header and footers to appear in their usual position, so only the text frame is rotated. I do not want the roated page to have side heads. so, first i tried this: Format > Page Layout > New Master Page. Here I can only create a new master page based on the current page's layout (which of course has side heads). I tried this and then I could not find a way to get rid of the side heads. Then I looked in FM help. It told me that to create an empty master page, go to Special > Add Master Page. Well, Add Master Page does not appear in the Special menu! How do I do what I want: a rotated page, no side heads, using the headers and footers of the unroated pages?
