Sometimes we receive PDF files that are in the wrong orientation. They may be sideways or even upside down. This most commonly happens with scanned or faxed documents. It is possible to rotate the view of these PDFs with the free Adobe Reader product, but it is not possible to save the PDF with the rotated pages using Adobe Reader — not even with the latest Document Cloud (DC) version (or any earlier version of Reader). To do this with an Adobe product requires the relatively expensive Adobe Acrobat (Standard or Professional). This video Micro Tutorial shows how to rotate the pages of a PDF, and save the rotated document, with excellent, free software called PDF-XChange Editor from Tracker Software Products.

Video Steps

1. Download the Free Version of PDF-XChange Editor


Visit the website for Tracker Software Products:

http://www.tracker-software.com/product/pdf-xchange-editor

Tick the radio button for the installer you prefer and then click the DOWNLOAD NOW button.

Step1

2. Run the downloaded installer


Run the installer that you downloaded and select the Free Version (unless, of course, you want more features and would like to purchase the Pro Version).

Step2

3. Open the document in PDF-XChange Editor


Run PDF-XChange Editor and open the sideways or upside-down document in it.

Step3

4. Run the Rotate Pages feature


Click Document menu

Click Rotate Pages

Step4

5. Select desired rotation and which pages to rotate


In the Direction drop-down, choose Clockwise 90 degrees or 180 degrees or Counterclockwise 90 degrees.

Select which pages to rotate. Choices are:

All
Selected pages
Current page
Pages (a range with all pages or odd pages only or even pages only)
Orientation (rotate pages of any orientation or portrait pages only or landscape pages only)

Step5

6. Save the rotated document


Click the File menu, then Save As, storing the file wherever you want and with whatever name you want.

Step6
That's it! You now have a PDF with rotated pages.

Microsoft Office Picture Manager was included in Office 2003, 2007, and 2010, but not in 2013 or 2016. Now that Office 2019 is here, the bad news is that it is still missing, but the good news is that the same no-cost method that works to install it…
