Footer on Landscape Page

    • Select the number and from the Insert tab, in the Header & Footer group, choose Page Number again.
    • Choose Format Page Number.
    • Under Page numbering, choose Continue from Previous section and click OK.
      (If this doesn't show, select the number and press F9 to update fields)
  • Select the Text Box,
  • From the Format tab, in the Text group, click the Text Direction command until the text is the way you want it.
  • You will need to move and re-size the text box until you get it where you want it to be.
  • With the Text Box still selected, from the Format tab, in the Text Box Style group,
  • Click the Shape Outline command and choose No Outline to remove the border.
