When I print a landscape PDF from Adobe Reader to FreePDF to use the MultiDoc option to build one PDF file from that input PDF (first part of a presentation held by a fellow and created with a newer PowerPoint version that I don't have a license of) and my PowerPoint Presentation (the second part of the presentation), I observe two things:
- Adobe Reader tells me about some "reduction process", a progress bar fills up, once for a page, I think, but there is no count, so you just see a progress bar filling up again and again for more than five minutes wondering whether it already has crashed or whatever. But finally the FreePDF dialog comes up normally.
- When I open the final PDF, the pages printed form Adobe Reader to FreePDF have been rotated 90° counter-clockwise. The second part printed from PowerPoint is in landscape mode and fine.
- The generated PDF is abount 12 MB in size and the rotated pages do render very slowly while the original one is less than 2 MB and renders very quickly.
How can I easily join those two parts to become one file and prevent the pages from rotating? (GUI tools preferred.)
