How To: Adobe Acrobat: Rotate Pages and Save Them

We received a document that was scanned into PDF upside down.

When we saved the PDF into our SharePoint site and opened it we then went to View –> Rotate View –> Clockwise. We then saved the PDF and re-opened it. But the pages were upside down when we opened it.

After some searching we came up with the following method for Acrobat X:

  1. Open the PDF document.
  2. Click on Tools
    • image
  3. Click on Pages to open its menu.
  4. Click on Rotate.
    • image
  5. Set the Direction for the rotation and click OK.
    • image
  6. Save the PDF.
  7. Close it then re-open it.

The pages will now display correctly.

Hat Tip: AcrobatUsers.com Save rotated page.
