Limitations on the rotation of PDF documents

There are some limitations to rotate PDF files. This is what you need to know.

  • These methods will not work on a read-only PDF. If a PDF file is read-only, you cannot edit it in any way. This means that you cannot rotate the document in any way. You’ll need to change the read-only properties first in order to do this.
  • Rotating a PDF does not bypass password protection. If a PDF is password protected, you will still need to know the password to edit the file and rotate it.
