Default How do you turn a Publisher PAGE Sideways and enter data?

I am creating a tri-fold mailer in publisher but want to look at each
panel in the correct orientation (they are sideways and facing
different directions currently). Do you know how to rotate the entire
page with the objects so that it can be created without being seasick?

When you start to create a file go to File, Printer setup. Here set the
Portrait/ Landscape the way the paper travels through the printer. Normally
paper goes through the printer, Portrait.

Next, File, Page setup. Here set the Portrait/Landscape the way the paper
is held when you read the file.

Think of a file that is a 4"x6" Postcard that the card goes through the
printer in the Portrait configuration but read in a landscape configuration.
The File, Printer setting would be Portrait and the File, Page setup would
be Landscape.

Page setup, Portrait, Arrange, what ever margins your printer can print,
gridguides, 3 rows. The spacing should be what you determined for the margins.

Page one, top and bottom panels should be rotated 180 degrees. You shouldn't
have to rotate any thing on page 2.

that's not quite what I meant. for the outside (mailing side) of a
tri fold mailer, you start with a 8.5 x 11 page that is divided
(eventually folded) into 3 even panels. when you create it, the top
and bottom panels are designed so that the text is readable in the
same direction. however the middle panel is upside down so that when
it is folded, all the directions are readable without flipping the
page. how do you design in publisher so that you can have publisher
flip the entire publication so that you can work on a panel without
imagining it upside down?

So there is no way to rotate the page, but can only rotate the
elements? I did a work-around by creating the top and bottom panels as
separate documents, grouped them, rotated them 180 then copied and
pasted into the final document.
