I have a question to ask. There’s more than 50 pages in my PDF document, including tables, images, etc. How do I rotate some of these pages horizontally?
With you can do a lot more than this. It’s as if it was specially designed for your task lol. Just upload or drag and drop your PDF and choose which pages you wish to rotate. All you need is input the page numbers correctly :)

I have a scanned PDF file which is displayed upside down on my computer screen. I managed to flip it using built-in tools but there’s no way I can save the newly created version now. Any ideas for a Mac application that might help me out?
