I've been working for a long time with a continuing aggravation. I edit long documents with pages at often random orientations. I come to a page that needs rotating and THREE selections later it's done. A few pages later, repeat. Once in a while no big deal but dozens or hundreds of times a day having to make three selections instead clicking one button to rotate a page clockwise or counterclockwise seems like an archaic punishment. Is there a way for a non-programmer to create such a macro or button? Any suggestions appreciated.

You can add the Rotate Pages tool to the toolbar, but it would still open the normal dialog.

If you want to immediately rotate the current page by 90 or 270 degrees that would require a script. The script can create a menu item or a toolbar item. The latter can then be added to the Quick Tools toolbar, for quick access.

Looks like the time has come for me to learn Java scripting, I see there is a lot of guidance out there. Thanks much for the direction.
