Selecting Page Orientation and Size
By default, most Pages templates are created for standard paper sizes, with the text
printed in portrait (vertical) orientation. If your document will require a different paper
size or you want to print it in landscape (horizontal) orientation, you should set the
paper size and orientation at the start. This way, as you work in your document, you
will have a clearer idea of what it’s going to look like.
“Setting the Paper Size and Orientation” on page 253 provides instructions for
changing the page orientation and setting up paper size.
If you start with a Blank (word processing) or Blank Canvas (page layout) document,
the templates are available in portrait and landscape orientation.
