Is there anything that you can do to fix a pdf that was created with the wrong orientation?

May 1, 2013 9:45 AM

Someone sent me 40-page pdf created from a document with landscape orientation that was output with portrait orientation. The pages are clipped off on the right and left. There is no way that I can see that you can change the orientation in Acrobat Pro and if it is converted into a Word document you can see most of the text, but there is still some missing, especially where there are tables. I don't have access to the original document. I was just curious if there was a way around this?

    You can rotate pages, but if they were clipped the contents are almost certainly permanently gone.

    You may want to contact the creator. They may not be aware that they have a problem. If they have creation problems with Acrobat, then suggest they come to the forum and ask questions.
