Rotate PDF Documents

SUMMARY: Don't turn your head to view rotated PDF documents in Adobe Reader 7 - fix this onscreen.

Sometimes you may come across PDF documents that were created with text flowing vertically, not horizontally. These mainly occur in documents meant to be printed in landscape view, not portrait. Unless you wish to tilt your head to one side, you can rotate the document onscreen with Adobe Reader 7 for a more pleasant viewing experience.

To rotate a document clockwise: Select "View" - "Rotate View" - "Clockwise".

To rotate a document counterclockwise: Select "View" - "Rotate View" - "Counterclockwise".
