The default orientation of any word processing software- such as Word and Google Docs- is portrait.
However, by following a few simple steps, you can change the orientation of a page to the landscape mode. In this article, we will be focusing on how to do this in Google Docs.
There are some situations when the landscape mode is more useful than portrait mode.
For example, a table with a lot of columns fits better in the landscape orientation as it requires more horizontal space than a smaller table.
It’s also useful when you have large pictures in your document or when you want to insert several pictures side-by-side.
You can also use the landscape mode when you want to include a chart with a long x-axis in your document.
