How does one change a specific page from portrait to landscape while the rest of the pages remain to be portrait in Openoffice?

Any idea?

Thanks

Insert=>Manual Break...=>Page break
Then you can Format=> Page and set to landscape
To go back to portrait put in another page break
hth

EDIT: sorry, that doesn't work! I'll have another look

from the help page:
To change the page orientation only for the current page, you first need a page style, then apply that style:
1.Choose Format - Styles and Formatting.
2.Click the Page Styles icon.
3.Right-click, and choose New.
4.On the Organiser tab page, type a name for the page style in the Name box.
5.In the Next Style box, select the page style that you want to apply to the next page.
To only apply the new page style to a single page, select "Default".
To apply the new page style to all subsequent pages, select the name of the new page style.
6.Click the Page tab.
7.Under Paper format, select Portrait or Landscape.
8.Click OK.
