How to Rotate a pdf while viewing it in PDF Embed API
Like Clockwise, AntiClockwise or 180 degrees rotate.
sample example is given below:
Currently, page rotation is not an option in Embed API.
This is a major issue for my users; they're having to use the native Chrome PDF viewer instead, since they're reading scientific papers with many pages in landscape layout to accommodate large tables.
How are these PDF files getting created where the pages are not in the correct reading orientation prior to posting?
It's ubiquitous in scientific publishing; they're optimizing for print, where a reader would turn the actual printed page to read the table. For a representative example, see Table 1 in https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-020-19814-6.pdf; often an entire page will be like that. When reading the article on screen, it's important to be able to rotate the page in the PDF reader.
Wow. That's pretty annoying. Modern PDF creation tools are smart enough to set the rotation on the page as the file is being created.
Anyway. Rotation is currently not a feature of Embed API but the engineering team has been delivering new features and APIs at a fairly steady clip. I wouldn't be surprised if rotation turned up at some point.
