We have created thousands of PDF files that are printed as a label on a special label printer. Printing these labels is ok, but some of the label paper are quarter turned and the PDF are printed incorrectly. There is a possibility to rotate the page before printing. But is it possible to rotate a PDF file and save it again as a PDF file? And there are thousands of PDF files, is it also possible to do this is a batch program?

You mean rotating all the pages 90 degrees? – Mehper C. Palavuzlar May 28 '10 at 11:32

What OS? In Mac OS, the Preview app lets you modify PDFs in lots of ways including page rotation, and save save the modified file.

If you have Adobe Acrobat Professional, you can rotate all pages of a PDF document from Document > Pages > Rotate. In order to "batch rotate" the PDFs, go to Advanced > Batch Processing and create a new sequence.

I tend to use open source tools for that: either PDF Split and Merge, which is generally more robust: or PDF architect, whic has a nicer, though less stable GUI:

However, take care about all the tickboxes in installers - they tend to include various browser addons you probably do not need.
