Yes, it's possible to have different orientations (and page / media sizes) within the same database. If you're wanting to do this to print (which I suspect is what you're after), the easiest way to manage it is to write a script that restores the Print Setup (Windows) or Page Setup (Mac) settings prior to printing. Then you can attach that script to a button that your users can click to restore the appropriate settings.
Thanks Mike, this is helpful.
I generally store page orientation in a text box on the layout itself. I name a text box "orientation" and give it a value of "landscape" or "portrait". Then on Layout Load I run a script that checks that named object (using GetLayoutObjectAttribute) and uses Print Setup to set the correct orientation.
Thanks David. These are electronically filled out forms and are a collection of both orientations, I was hoping to find a way for the electronic version to view and fill in landscape. Do you know how to do this?
