How to permanently rotate pdf 90 deg?

Jul 10, 2008 10:40 AM

Whenever I open a certain pdf doc it is shown clockwise rotated by 90 deg.
Ok I can de-rotate it by clicking the appropriate menu in Adobe Reader.

But is there a way to save this pdf so that it is automatically shown correctly at next opening WITHOUT having to explicitely rotate it through AR menues?

If yes: How?

    This cannot be done in Reader, only Acrobat Standard, Pro, or Extended.

    This is an Adobe forum, so mentions of other software products is not appropriate.

    Except when other products are able to solve a problem that Adobe's software can't. This is basic functionality and should be part of Adobe Reader.

    Install a pdf file printer driver and print the rotated file to the "pdf" printer. It will ask you for a file name to "print" to. The "printed" file will open in the correct orientation.

    Using AP, there are two methods of rotating pages. Think of one method as a view rotation and the other as a total file rotation. You want to go after the file rotation.

     

    Problem. Most commonly used is the view rotation method (not permanent). Generally, these are menu buttons or perhaps you are using Ctrl+Shift+Plus/Minus to rotate left or right. Don't use this. Following a view rotation, notice your save icon is grayed out and if you save as..., there is no change.

     

    Solution. Open your file that you want rotated (even if it is 1000 pages all in the wrong direction). Go to Document/Rotate Pages... or use Ctrl+Shift+R and this opens your rotation menu. You have several rotation options to rotate single pages, all pages, or a selection of pages. Choose what you need and select OK to proceed. Now you have two options; 1. You will notice your save icon is no longer grayed out so you can permanenly save the file, 2. You will be able to save as... a new file, should you want to keep the original in tact. Both options permanenly save your chosen rotation(s). This has been built into to software for quite some time but is often overlooked - and rightly so as its not immediately evident.

     

    No cumbersome third-party software needed to resolve (or learn).

    No printer driver to fumble with.

    I believe Michael was refering to Adobe Acrobat Pro or Standard. So how would mentioning other Adobe products be inappropriate on an Adobe Forum?

    I think the message was referring to a now-deleted post.
