Solved: How do I change 1/3 of a letter-sized page in a different orientation?

Solution 1

Option 1: Go to Layout tab > Page Setup options > Paper tab > Select size (width & height)

Option 2: Go to Layout tab > Page Setup options > Orientation > Portrait

Microsoft Page Setup to change 1/3 of a letter-sized page in a different orientation

Reference

Microsoft Support > Insert a section break

Solution 2

In Word for Mac, choose File>Page Setup. To create a custom page size:

  1. Click on the Paper Size dropdown and choose Manage Custom Sizes.
  2. Click on the Plus sign to create a new paper size.
  3. Double-click on Untitled and give it a name like Page Third.
  4. Set the Width to 3.66″ and the Height to 8.5″. (Yes, it’s counter-intuitive, but this makes it work with Portrait and Landscape options correctly)
  5. Assuming you’re using this only for display and not printing, you can set the margins to 0 all around. Click on the OK button to save changes.

Back in the Page Setup dialog, choose the new paper size. If your chosen printer can handle it, the name will appear as Page Third, or whatever you called it. If you’re printer can’t handle it, the name will be Other. The page dimensions will display, so you know you have the right one. Set Oriention to Landscape and click on the OK button. Word will display the new page size.

Now choose Insert > Table. You probably just need one cell. With the table selected, click on Table Design > Borders and choose No Border.

Choose the Layout tab to the right of Table Design and click on the Text Direction button twice. Text in the table should now be oriented as in you screen shot.

Solution 3

Insert a table for this text and use the table text orientation option to rotate this text.

Solution 4

If the section turned at 90 degrees is static (doesn’t change per-page) then it can be done as an image. Create an image of that section, rotate it 90 degrees, and then lock that image at the desired location on the page.
