I have a really large table and I need to add it to a portrait document. Is there any way to make a single page landscape in Google Docs? In word you could add a "Section break" and do that. I hope it's not too much to ask. I'm working on a document with my friend and I can't just use Word. :(

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.
Currently a single Google Document can only be either Landscape or Portrait not both. Changing page orientation is done by selecting File and then Page setup...
It is currently recommended to separate the Landscape and Portrait pages into different documents.
A good place to get more information that might help is at Google Products Forums.
Note: An additional option might be to have three files in Google Docs. The Portrait, The Landscape, and Microsoft Word Doc which integrates the two layouts into the correct sequence (this document would be Read Only when viewed in Google Docs).
A Microsoft Word document may allow multiple orientations of the Page Layout, but if it is converted to a Google Document the Page Layout for each page will revert to the first Orientation found in the document.
Also, creating multiple Orientations in Word isn't as straight forward as one might want either.
For those wanting to do this in Word: Use portrait and landscape orientation in the same document
