    This isn't possible unfortunately. You need to use a desktop program such as Acrobat to do this.

    If you're on an iPad or iPhone, when you rotate your device, the PDF should rotate. It's possible to set a preference to lock the device to keep the rotation from happening, so check that setting.

    Alec,

     

    I read the request differently. I thought Nick was asking about the viewing of a PDF document. But he wasn't clear.

    I have a new iPad (iPad 3). If you look just above the volume toggle on the side of the iPad, there is a "lock orientation" control. When turned on, you cannot rotate your PDF (or any other file).

    That hardware button can actually be toggled to work either as a mute button, or a lock orientation button. This can be edited at the settings screen.
