Using ArcMap 10.1: Since there is not a way to control portrait or landscape of the layout view through python, is there a way to switch layout templates without opening a new mxd through python? Since there is a change layout template button it would be nice to have a python function to do the same..

You could request this as an ArcGIS Idea but so far, at least for me, requirements like this have been easy to meet by just opening a new MapDocument object so I suspect it would not attract a lot of votes. – PolyGeo Apr 5 '13 at 4:21
