How can I rotate a TEXT BOX in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC.

Some times when I copy a text box from another file, it shows 90 or 180 degree rotated.

Hey there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. With the help of Acrobat DC's Edit tool, you can rotate an object within the PDF. Rotating a text field is something would not be possible.

Acrobat DC allows rotation for page/s of a file and rotations of an image.

If your document has something rotated 90 or 180 degree, then it would probably be an image. You may check that once again.

 

To rotate an image, Open PDF>Edit Tool>select the image>rotate

 

Did this work for you?

 

Thanks,

Akanchha

Hi Akanchha,

 

It does not work for me. I need to be able to rotate the text box for 10+ years; and still Adobe is resisting to  improve. There are lots of things that I believe customers have been requested for years; but Adobe don't care to imply.

This is the reason companies and individuals prefer and choose other (competator) software.

Adobe require to open their eyes and look around them.

Adobe Acrobat must be owned by Autodesk. the same problems are continuing, yet the software developers ignore all of the user problems and requests.

seriously? this is Adobe's reply? wow. you would think something like rotating a string of text would be an easy thing to do.  But I have noticed, this program, I have Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, sounds fancy, but cant really do much, like rotate a string of text.  Unbelievable..  Adobe should take notes from Bluebeam Revu, such a nice, intuitive, PDF manipulator.

Very frustrating when you are redlining multiple documents and pasting a text box over and over again. Some pages it comes in formated correctly and others it randomly rotates the text box 90 degrees. Please have the programmers look into this and fix it.

Hi Jack,

 

Thank you for reaching out.

 

Would you mind sharing more details about the issue?

- Share the Acrobat and OS versions.

- What do you mean by "pasting a text box over and over again"?

- Please share the complete workflow and screen recording of the steps you do that create the issue.

- Did you start experiencing this issue recently?

 

Thanks,

Meenakshi,

Let me simplify this question. I ran into this issue today, for the first time. I searched and found that this question has been floating around this forum since at least 2013. No satisfactory answers.

 

Question: How do I rotate text or a text box?

 

Workflow: Open any pdf, Comment-Add Text Box, Type Text, Unanswered desire to rotate text

 

Some people seem to have a problem with text being rotated automatically when they cut-paste it into a pdf. However, I think the solution to all of these problems is the same. If you have trouble replicating this issue then I suggest you do the following: Open any pdf, Comment-Add Text Box, type text, attempt to rotate the text box.

 

Thank you,

Jon

Hi,

Sorry for resurecting and old thread, but it is a problem I have had for years and I just hit on a work around.

If you are using Acrobat DC, and the pasted text box is rotated, undo the paste, then use Organise Pages to rotate the target page.

Paste the box back in again and then rotate the page back to the correct orientation.

Silly that you should have to do this, but at least it is one way to work around the problem.

Hope it helps.....
