I have two fixups that rotate pages, based on size and orientation. After running the fixups and confirming that all pages have been rotated correctly, I save the PDF.
When I close and re-open the PDF, all of the rotated pages are back to their prior, incorrect orientation; this seems especially odd to me because I saved the file with the pages correctly oriented.
How can I make the fixups permanent?
What exact commands did you use?
I'm running Rotate pages to landscape if portrait (set to rotate only 11x17 pages), and Rotate pages to portrait if landscape (set to rotate only 8.5x11 pages).
If it matters, I'm using an action to run them both.
Also, to be clear, once the the fixups are applied, everything looks correct, and the Save icon becomes available, so I'm positive I'm saving the file before I close.
I wasn't able to reproduce the issue. It worked fine for me on a test file.
What were the details to the action you were using?
Can you share this file?
Thank you, roaringmousegraphics and JR, for responding to my post.
I've attached a scrubbed version of the file. Looks like I can't attach fixups and actions, so I've put them here:
A couple observations from this morning:
I have read Adobe's online documentation about fixups, but perhaps I missed something; however, the fact that I'm presented with a live Save icon post-action, but clicking it does not actually save the file suggests something else is afoot.
Thank you for your help.
Your action did indeed create a file that unless you Save AS to a new name or overwrite the old one, a simple Save didn't do it. Whether that's a bug or not, I'm not sure, but it's worth reporting.
In the meantime, your Action didn't have a Save at the end.. if you add that to the bottom of your Action, it will work correctly.
That worked! Thank you!
It may not be a bug, in the sense that that behavior is perhaps how Adobe expected it, but from a UI perspective, I'd say it definitely is: Having a clickable Save icon that doesn't actually save is a problem.
