Can PageRotation be reset without rotating the page?

I have forms which have had pages rotated in Acrobat (they come from InDesgin files with vertical spreads, where half of the pages are rotated 180°)

In Acrobat, I usually rotate the pages back 180° to proper reading orientation, but there is an issue if the user opens the form in Apple Preview. Apparently, Preview doesn't recognize the form field rotation; the page views in proper rotated space, but the fields do not.

I'd like to be able to clear the PageRotation WITHOUT rotating the page - i.e. change the 180 to 0 for the page, while maintaining the current page orientation and field locations.

Is this at all possible?

Yes, it can be done using a script, which basically re-creates the file. However, it will flatten all form fields, comments, links, etc. in it, so I'm not sure if that will solve your issue... If so, feel free to contact me privately (try6767 at gmail.com) to discuss it further.

Flattening pages seems to do what I need, I should be able to do the rest.
