Click-and-drag method The PDF reader should automatically create a file by rotating pages, saving the rotated file, and you will be presented with the view that you selected in Adobe Reader. (Note: The rotation must be done only in Acrobat, not in Reader.) How to rotate a PDF on a Mac or Linux using parrot A new feature in Adobe Acrobat for Mac or Linux that allows it to rotate a PDF with a mouse, keyboard or touchscreen. Simply open the file you wish to rotate in Adobe PDF or PDF Touch; turn on Rotate. Then select one or more pages. Click on the Rotate View button at the top, then select the page(s) you want to rotate. The rotated view will be displayed on the right side of the viewer. Adobe has announced that they will discontinue PDF viewer app on OS X and Linux. This means that the rotation feature of PDF Reader is no longer available to rotate PDFs, but PDF Touch will continue to rotate and save the generated files. PDF Page Rotor is open source software (BSD license) built by a team of passionate volunteers to help save pages from PDF files. The project has successfully developed a web based software and a tool allowing you to rotate PDF pages directly from your browser. If you want to help the project with translations or fixes, simply fork the project at GitHub In April this year, Acrobat made a huge change to their PDF viewer. It has removed a free and well-known feature from their reader that would allow me to rotate the document and save the rotated file. PDF rot is a fork of Adobe PDF Reader DC which adds the feature again. The new version of Parrot provides the same functionality as previously but also lets you save your rotation with a single button: the button in the toolbar, or using the shortcut Ctrl + R. Now, when I rotate a PDF I don't need to re-open the app to save the rotation. I just use the shortcut again to save the rotated PDF.
