I have a scanned document. I need the image mirrored. When I go into edit mode not just the document is an image block but it auto selects a whole lot of smaller image/text blocks. When I flip it all of the smaller selection boxes flip in place when i need the entire image to flip completely. Please help.

Hi Randy,

 

as you've discovered, when you go into Edit mode Acrobat select each individual component and any global action is performed on each of them, not the page as a whole. 

I think the only option I can think of is to use either Photoshop or Illustrator. If you do not have them you could take advantage of Adobe's 7 day trial. 

good luck

You can use an Acrobat preflight fixup to flip all pages. Tools> Print Production> Preflight> Fixups. To flip one page only, first extract it, mirror, then re-insert it. Tools> Organize pages> Extract/Insert.

Thank you very much for the response. Unfortunately, I do not have those same options that you are showing in your screenshot.Screen Shot 2021-01-23 at 7.35.26 PM.png
