It is possible within a portrait-orientated Word template to configure how landscape content is also formatted. This is important if you want the content of the template header and footer to be different from the default portrait layout and will enable Scroll Word Exporter to map any landscape defined content that you have added to your Confluence page (eg. via the Scroll Landscape macro).

To configure Landscape page orientation in a default Portrait template please follow these steps:

  1. Open the Word template
  2. Go to the page where you have defined your $scroll.content placeholder
  3. Select Layout, choose Breaks and click on Section Breaks [Next page]

  4. After this, on the new blank page, again go to Layout, select Orientation and click on Landscape
  5. Now, on this Landscape page you can make any required changes for the header and footer - make sure you have the option Link to Previous selected
  6. Following this, save the template
  7. Next, on the Landscape page, select Layout, choose Breaks and select Section Breaks [Next page]
  8. On the new blank page, select Layout, choose Orientation and click Portrait 
  9. After this, highlight the section break on the landscape page and delete it

  10. Finally, repeat this step and delete the section break on the original page with the $scroll.content placeholder
  11. After this, save the template again and upload it to Confluence

The template will be in a portrait orientation but will have a landscape page configured.
