Hi, When I open a pdf that was scanned in horizontally and I use the "Rotate" option to correct the file I then click file save as and resave it so it will open correctly to who I send it.
Problem is even after it is saved even as a new file name it still opens horizontally. Why? How do I get this to save properly? Thanks
That's exactly correct. Rotate view rotates the VIEW only - what you are looking at. It does not change the document. You need ROTATE PAGES, a function only in the paid-for Acrobat (which also has Rotate View, unchanged).
Yes I see I must click on the thumbnail view, select pages to rotate then do so. This then "activates" the Save button and it saves correctly thanks!
I do know how to rotate the file—not just the "view"—but even when I do that, strange things often happen.
Sometimes, I'll open the file and Adobe will randomly change the orientation.
Others, the "space bar" preview on Mac OSX will be buggy.
In general, I've found a TON of bugs regarding keeping Adobe acrobat pages the correct rotation—and wonder if others do as well?
Adobe Acrobat Professional 100% working
Open the pdf which you want to rotate
Go to View
Go to Rotate view
Change the preferred rotation
Go to print
Select Foxit printer (It saves the documents on your system, saves as a file (soft copy mean to say saves in the computer)
Then click print
Rename and save it choosing your preferred location
Now you are done with it.

Now, this is opened in the preferred view.
Thank you George, but if you have Acrobat Professional (the original poster DID NOT 3 years ago) there is certainly no point using a third party PDF printer. Or even the Adobe PDF Printer. Use the Rotate Pages function NOT THE ROTATE VIEW FUNCTION. In Acrobat DC it's under Organize Panes or the Pages view in the left panel
Thanks for your suggestion MVP. You are right but when we can do the work in the old version why can't we use it. My work is to do the work assigned as a document controller I do it in the perfect way when I upload the documents. That's all. Now you can see updated guidelines how to use it with the screenshots.
No. You do not have to use the paid software look for my below guidelines on how to save in preferred view
If you don't have to use the paid software why do you begin your instructions by saying "Adobe Acrobat Professional"? Nobody with the free software will bother to read your instructions, which might otherwise be useful to them.
I imagine, though, Adobe will delete the post, since the purpose of this forum is not to promote third party alternatives to paid-for Adobe products... !
You can rotate it to the view you want, then select print and use Microsoft Print to PDF.
