I'm trying to create a document with 12 x A4 portrait with normal text and 2 x A4 landscape with a table on it. How do I achieve this please? It changes the whole document when I try to change just 2 pages! Please tell me this is possible! TIA

Orientation is a property of page style. Consequently, to switch from portrait to landscape, you must insert a page break (manually or through an ad hoc style) and select the desired page style after the break. Built-in Landscape is intended for that while Default Style is in portrait orientation.

You are encouraged to read the Writer Guide to discover what can be done with styles.

I tried that :-( it still did the whole document even with a page break (CTRL-Enter)

That's not good enough, you need to do Insert - Manual break, then select landscape or portrait page style from the list.

Thank you so much, that worked! I've been using Open/Libre Office for years, but never had to do this before for my Daughter In Law's Literary Review for her final year of Nursing - you've saved both of our sanity. :-)
