When a document is printed horizontally, that’s called “landscape.”

Change your flyer’s orientation by adjusting the page setup.

Select “Landscape.”

You can also adjust the margins, or the white space that borders the page.

To leave less white space on the edges of the page, enter smaller margins.

You can also adjust the size.
