I am using, in this case Acrobat XI pro. In an attempt to save a document, that was scanned using a different application (Kofax Express 3.2), as a PDF. I am finding that after running text recognition pages that were oriented correctly have been rotated, either upside down or 90 degrees. Has anyone noticed this issue when using the text recognition?
I hope you already have found an answer to this question.
Rotate your page before you convert a file to PDF/A.
Rotate pages You can rotate all or selected pages in a document. Rotation is based on 90° increments.
You can rotate pages using the rotate tools in the Page Thumbnails pane or by using the Rotate option (described below).
1 Choose Tools > Pages > Rotate.
2 For Direction, select the amount and direction of the rotations: Counterclockwise 90 Degrees, Clockwise 90 Degrees, or 180 Degrees.
3 For Pages, specify whether all pages, a selection of pages, or a range of pages are to be rotated.
4 From the Rotate menu, specify Even Pages, Odd Pages, or both, and select the orientation of pages to be rotated.
