Usually the default page size of a Word document is A4, and sometimes we may need to change the page size to meet different requirements. Now, this article will demonstrate how to set page size and page orientation for word document programmatically using Free Spire.Doc for Java.

Installation
Method 1: Download the Free Spire.Doc for Java and unzip it. Then add the Spire.Doc.jar file to your Java application as dependency.

Method 2: Directly add the jar dependency to maven project by adding the following configurations to the pom.xml.

        doc.loadFromFile("Oscar Wilde.docx");
        //Get the first section
        Section section = doc.getSections().get(0);
        //Set the page size
        section.getPageSetup().setPageSize(PageSize.A3 );
        //Set the page orientation
        section.getPageSetup().setOrientation(PageOrientation.Landscape);
