Greetings,

so nearly everyone, including the boss, receive PDF attachments in Outlook that are always sideways and need to be rotated to be viewed. They want them to automatically open straight so-to-speak. Any ideas how this can be done? Outlook or PDF setting?

much appreciated

Hello rpliner,

I believe you have a few options and alternatives here :

1.) A central person from your compant could receive the PDF, print it out,then rescan it correctly onto the workstation as PDF again, and then send it to the specific persons of your company, so that when it's opened it opens correctly.

2.) When opening PDF, simply press "Shift&Ctrl&+" or "Shift&Ctrl&-" to immediately rotate the PDF.

3.) Last but not least ask the original PDF creator to scan it in correctly.

thanks cyberion1985 - I will try these. However, even shortcut keys will likely be unacceptable. thanks again

thanks for the replies. nothing worked as far as forcing the attachment to open in portrait with no user intervention though. The previewer worked but they want to open directly in acrobat outside of outlook.

thanks
