Rotate Pages

Post by joseph.stone » Mon Oct 14, 2019 3:15 pm

When I open a pdf file and rotate the pages, the save file option is disabled.
If i use the save as option and save, the new pdf file is not with the rotated pages.

i use the lastest version of pdf-xchange editor free 8.0.333.0

The Rotate pages operation is comparable to e.g. you ripping a page from that same example book and then rotating and taping it back in another orientation - now it is physically oriented differently than the rest of the pages in your book.

To permanently rotate pages inside a PDF file you need this command:
