Description

I like being able to add a few pages to a composer when I have a small mapping project or one that the atlas features don't work well with. It's also makes it easier to have dynamic overviews on a key/reference map.

But it's not currently possible to change the orientation of a specific page to portrait or landscape based on a data defined override (expression) or a checklist (gui).

There's a variable for "layout_page" with a specific page number, but that's only available to map elements/items on that page.

I can't use it in the "Composition" tab to override the orientation with an expression like:

CASE
WHEN @layout_page IN (2,4)
THEN 'landscape'
ELSE 'portrait'
END

I asked a question on GIS.se and the answers provide some workarounds. http://gis.stackexchange.com/q/186417/1297

Maybe an option to change orientation for specific pages (like a checklist), in the orientation section, or the "page" part where a user can enter multiple pages would be nice too.
