Remember when you’ve pressed the rotate left/right button in a PDF? And then you’ve opened the file again and it wasn’t rotated anymore…

No more of that! By the end of this post, you’re going to leave with a PDF whose pages are on the right side.

Use our online & free PDF rotating tool to get your pages on track forever.

Without any further ado, let’s get at it!

Why won’t my PDF stay rotated?

Your PDF won’t stay rotated because if you rotate the PDF every time you open it,  the pages will always come back to the side they were before.

Instead, use an online software to change the side of the pages.

How to permanently rotate a PDF (for free)

  1. Upload your PDF in the box below;
  2. Rotate the pages (or the full document);
  3. Click “Apply Changes” & Download it.

In our PDF editor, you simply need to rotate the pages to the preferred side once. Then, they’ll stay like that forever.

No need to re-rotate the pages.

Highlighting a page that will be rotated

You can choose how to permanently rotate the pages in your PDF:

  1. All pages at once
  2. Only the odd-numbered pages;
  3. Or only the even-numbered pages.

Pro Tip: Feel free to reorder your PDF’s pages by clicking them and dragging around until you find the right place.

There’s so much you can do with our PDF editor!
