Actually, what works better is to create new landscape pages based on the existing portrait pages. The following instructions are for a two-sided document, but if your document is single-sided, then only the instructions for the Right page would apply.
1.) Go to master pages. 2.) Add two new master page, calling it LandScape Left and Landscape Right. 3.) On the newly named landscape page, select Format > Customize Layout > Rotate Page and rotate CW for the right page and CCW for the left page. 4.) Using the zoom button, select Fit Page in Window so that you can see all the contents (main body flow and headers and footers) on the page. 5.) Next, you will need to rotate the contents on the page. Sometimes, I delete the header and footer columns (because I can make new headers and footers later) and shrink the main text column down so that I can access the handles on the edge of the main text flow. The I select the main text column and the I select Graphics > Rotate and then rotate it CCW for the right page and CW for the left page. 8.) Now, resize the main text column (select it and stretch it) and then add new headers and footers (if you deleted them) or simply resize them. Don't forget to set new tab stops for the H/Fs since they are a different size than for the portrait pages. 9.) Make sure that the flow symbols on each text column is indeed on the left side of the page (or you rotated something in the wrong direction.)

The document was formatted using MasterPageMaps reference page. Since the majority of pages were landscape, the default lwft/right "body" pages were landscape. I am stealing this document to use as the structure of a new book, but I would like to change the default left/right body pages to be portrait. Could you advise how to rotate the master page left/right from landscape to portrait? (I am using Frame 8 but the book was written in 7.2) Theresa de Valence _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as tammy.vanboening at healthlanguage.com.
