    The short answer, unfortunately, is that you can't. A PowerPoint presentation has one page setup that is applied throughout.

    Workarounds:
    - Create two presentations, one with Portrait slides, the other with Landscape slides. If you want to switch after a slide, insert a hyperlink to the appropriate slide in the other presentation.
    - Create a play list. Look up playlist in the online help.

    There are a lot of workarounds listed on my site on the multiple masters page. http://www.echosvoice.com One of them is a link to a tutorial on MS PPT MVP TAJ Simmons' page that explains how to link to another presentation so that you don't have to mouseclick to get it to come up. It's a good way to link portrait and landscape presentations.

    You could add some code in a general module, like this

    <pre>Sub RotatePortrait()
    With ActivePresentation.PageSetup
    .SlideOrientation = msoOrientationVertical
    End With
    With SlideShowWindows(1).View
    .Next
    End With
    RefreshSlide
    End Sub
    </pre>


    <pre>Sub RotateLandScape()

    With ActivePresentation.PageSetup
    .SlideOrientation = msoOrientationHorizontal
    End With
    With SlideShowWindows(1).View
    .Next
    End With
    RefreshSlide
    End Sub
    </pre>


    <pre>Sub RefreshSlide()
    Dim lSlideIndex As Long
    lSlideIndex = SlideShowWindows(1).View.CurrentShowPosition
    SlideShowWindows(1).View.GotoSlide lSlideIndex
    End Sub
    </pre>



    Now on the slide preceeding the one thay you want rotated, you add an object (e.g. a textbox) and define "Action Settings". e.g. in the action settings dialog window, select the 'run macro' optionbutton and look for the macro e.g. RotatePortrait. On the slide which is presented in 'Portrait' you add another object for which you define as Action Setting to run the macro RotateLandscape to return to the previous version.
    It is possible you don't need the RefreshSlide macro, depending on the version of ppt you use.
