How to rotate pdf pages permanently

You scan a document, only to find out it’s upside down. You could head to the scanner again and get some movement into your body, but you’re not sure which way to orient the page. Here’s how to do it from your computer instead.

  1. Open the file in Adobe Reader
  2. Choose the menu option View->Rotate View->Clockwise
  3. Choose the menu option File->Print
  4. Choose to print to a PDF driver.  This is native in Windows 10.
  5. If you don’t have a PDF printer driver, try this one: http://www.cutepdf.com/products/cutepdf/writer.asp

The VC2010 runtime redistributable setup needs to load msxml3. winetricks tries to download it from a location in the microsoft.com website where it is no longer available. Instead, search the web for the file “msxml3.msi” and edit winetricks to point to it, eg:


vi winetricks

Find the load_msxml3 function, and replace the download location:

From:

w_download msxml3 http://download.microsoft.com/download/8/8/8/888f34b7-4f54-4f06-8dac-fa29b19f33dd/msxml3.msi d4c2178dfb807e1a0267fce0fd06b8d51106d913

To:

w_download msxml3 ftp://ftp.uni-rostock.de/pub/tools/microsoft/XML/US/msxml3.msi
