If I use Avery 5388 (without the rolodex cutouts), when I shift to
landscape, the template again does not rotate, I get 1 1/2 cards (in
landscape) on the page. (The rest disappear).

You create a page in landscape mode.
Input the text margins to get them at the sides of the index cards.
Make the rest a 3 column page.
You will need to watch out for the card's perferated "edges" so you do
not have any graphics, or stuff like that, "occupy" parts of the other
