Say, how can I save an Adobe pdf document such that it remembers the rotation that I have chosen, such that other users with open it up without needing to rotate it ?

Dear Shaunwingin,

You can use a PDF program that can edit the document such as Nitro PDF.
Under Edit Tab you can rotate the document and save it.

The next time you open the file with Adobe Reader it will "remember" new position.

Hope it helps,
Mamelas

The excellent (and free!) PDF-XChange Editor can rotate documents and then save them in the rotated view:
http://www.tracker-software.com/product/pdf-xchange-editor

They also have a PRO (non-free) version, but the free version does what you need. Just select the Free Version during installation:

Free or Pro
Do the rotation via the Document menu, then Rotate Pages:

Rotate Pages menu
Then tell it what rotation you want:

Rotate Pages dialog
After rotating, do a File>Save or File>Save As. Regards, Joe
