If you have to google how to go from portrait to landscape, the designers have failed.

The first file I opened in LibreOffice had a “First Page” style. Eventually I realized that I had to change the orientation of this page first and then the orientation of the rest of the document which had the “Standard-1” style. So, it was a two step process.
