pdf reader: rotated view possible?


is it possible to turn the pdf from normal view to landscape mode, i.e. to rotate the pdf.

In my pdf there are tables on some pages which are printed in landscape orientation, and it would be nice if I could switch the viewing mode inside the zotero pdf reader, as it is possible in other pdf readers.

    Yes, from the View menu, or by pressing R/Shift-R on the keyboard.
  • Thanks. I didn't realized, that the menu changes in the pdf reader.

    Is it possible to rotate only one page or more? I mean that only some pages needs to rotate.
  • @Bebetter: That's not currently possible. It would perhaps be more fitting for a PDF editing function. There was also a related request for the ability to delete pages: https://github.com/zotero/zotero/issues/2457.
  • That's a shame, I would also like to be able to rotate just a single page.
  • In the latest Zotero beta, we've added the ability to rotate (and delete) individual pages in the PDF itself.
  • Thanks for adding this function!

    I think the PDF page rotation labels could be improved.

    Currently, the labels are:
    Rotate 90°
    Rotate 180°
    Rotate 270°

    I'd like to suggest the following instead:
    Rotate 90° clockwise
    Rotate 180°
    Rotate 90° counter-clockwise

    A shorter alternative could be:
    Rotate 90° ↻
    Rotate 180°
    Rotate 90° ↺

    Rotating and deleting individual pages is now possible in Zotero 6.0.9 from the thumbnail tab of the PDF reader sidebar.

    @qqbb: Yeah, we can do better than the current labels.
  • @dstillman do you think the reader could also add pages? This can be useful to add a missing cover or to add a blank page for further remarks and handwritten annotations?
