    Portrait footer on Landscape page (2003)

    Is there a better method for inserting a portrait footer on a landscape page than the "insert text box, rotate text" method we had to use in Word 97 and Word 2000? That is sooo cumbersome. I have a 20 page document with almost every other page changing to landscape to accomodate a photograph. I tried inserting the text box route, and it was horribly awkward. Any better ideas?

    According to How to put a portrait page number on a landscape page on the Word MVP site, things haven't really changed...

    Yeah, I looked at that this morning. Was hoping something new in 03 had made this easier. Sigh.
    Thanks.

    If the only thing on the "landscape" page is the photograph, how about rotating it instead? I don't know whether Word can rotate an inline photograph, but it most likely can rotate a photograph in the drawing layer. Or you could pre-rotate it in another program. Of course then your captions would have to be rotated textboxes...

    I'm sure that easier handling of portrait/landscape pages within one document is on many users' wish list, but apparently it doesn't have priority with the Word developers. They'd probably argue that if it's important to you, you should use a page layout program.
