Rotating PDF files: Rotate pages vs. rotate view | Revu 2019

You can rotate a page by using either Rotate View or Rotate Pages. Rotate View temporarily changes your current view of the PDF, while Rotate Pages permanently changes the orientation of your document.

Rotate View

Rotate View temporarily changes the way the PDF is displayed in Revu without altering the content of the PDF, meaning that although the page and any existing markups will appear rotated, a new “top” of the page isn’t defined. In other words, if you rotate the PDF view clockwise by 90 degrees, the “top” edge of the page will be rotated to the right.

This means that when new markups are placed, they will appear to rotate as they match the new page orientation.

  • Go to View > Rotate View and then choose either Rotate Clockwise (Ctrl+Shift+Plus) or Rotate Counterclockwise (Ctrl+Shift+Minus).

Rotate Pages

Rotate Pages permanently rotates the page and defines a new “top” of the page. This also rotates existing markups, however new markups are aligned with the new “top” of the page.

  • Go to Document > Rotate Pages (Ctrl+Shift+R).
