Hello,

I am using RH 2017 for an API reference manual because of its advantage that we can output it as an online help/chm as well as printed documentation from the same source.

I have some sections that have wide tables (with 5 to 6 columns). While it looks fine in the CHM or online help, is it possible to adjust the width or orientation of such pages to landscape, in RH?

So all other sections can be portrait and only the sections with wide tables can be landscape. Is that doable?

If not, any other solution/suggestion?

Not from RoboHelp. You would need to generate the document and then play with the section breaks in Word.

Personally I would do everything I could to make the topics work portrait style. Smaller fonts etc.
