The Rotate Pages feature allows you to rotate the page contents of PDFs in 90° intervals. This feature rotates the page contents, which becomes permanent when the PDF is saved.
Revu also provides de-skewing functionality for pages that may have come in misaligned (for example, from a scanner).
This process can be run on multiple PDFs at the same time. PDFs do not need to be open in Revu when the process is run. If a document is open in Revu, any changes resulting from the process will be made to the document, but the document will not be saved or checked in (if relevant); the user will need to save and check in the document manually. If a document is not open in Revu, and it is not checked out/locked by another user, changes will be applied and saved to the document automatically (without opening the document in Revu).
There are two quick ways to rotate pages. These methods will rotate either the current page or all pages in the PDF, depending on whether Rotate all Pages by Default is enabled in Document Preferences:
- On the Rotation toolbar, click Rotate Counterclockwise or Rotate Clockwise.
- On the keyboard, press SHIFT+ALT+MINUS to rotate counterclockwise or SHIFT+ALT+PLUS to rotate clockwise.
There is a third way to rotate pages that lets you specify which pages are rotated:
- Select the desired pages' thumbnails on the Thumbnails tab.
- Go to Document > Rotate Pages or press CTRL+SHIFT+R. The Rotate Pages dialog box appears.
- Alternatively, go to Batch > Rotate Pages.
The active PDF, if any, is automatically added to the process. To add more PDFs, click Add and use one or more of the following methods:
- Files: Adds individual files from a network or local drive. Selecting this option will cause the Open dialog box to appear. Navigate to the appropriate location and select the desired files.
- Open Files: Adds all files currently open in Revu.
- Open Set: Adds all files contained in the current Set.
- Folder: Adds all files in a selected folder on a network or local drive, but not files contained in any of its subfolders. Selecting this option will cause the Select Folder dialog box to appear. Navigate to the desired folder and select it.
- Folder and Subfolders: Adds all files in a selected folder on a network or local drive as well as all files within any of its subfolders. Selecting this option will cause the Select Folder dialog box to appear. Navigate to the desired folder and select it.
To rotate specific pages for one or more of the PDFs, select the desired PDF and choose one of the following from its Pages dropdown:
- All Pages: Sets the range to all pages.
- Current: Sets the range to the current page only. The current page number will appear in parentheses, for example, Current (2) if page 2 is the current page.
- Selected: Sets the range to the current selection. This option only appears if pages were selected prior to invoking the command.
- Custom: Sets the range to a custom value.
When this option is selected the list becomes a text box.To enter a custom range:
- Use a dash between page numbers to define those two pages and all pages in between.
- Use a comma to define pages that are separated.
For example: 1-3, 5, 9 will include pages 1, 2, 3, 5 and 9.
Even Pages: Limits the process to only even pages.
Odd Pages: Limits the process to only odd pages.
Landscape Pages: Limits the process to only landscape-oriented pages.
Portrait Pages: Limits the process to only portrait-oriented pages.
- Select the desired rotation direction from the Direction menu.
- Click OK.
