Rotating document pages

The rotation functionality will allow you to rotate a single page document, any individual page of a multi-page document or all pages of a multi-page document by 90 degrees (in total you can rotate a document page 4 times meaning 360 degrees) through the Viewer.

Process of rotating pages of a document is described below:

  • Access SKYSITE Archives, enter any existing collection and then click on any file thumbnail to open the file in the application Viewer.

Screenshot below displays the file as viewed through the application Viewer:

  • Click on the [Rotate document] button [highlighted by the red rectangle in the screenshot above] to open the ‘Rotate document’ pop-up box.

Screenshot below displays the 'Rotate document' pop-up box:

 The current page of the document appears on the pop-up box.

  • Click on button to rotate the document in clockwise direction (right-side) by 90 degrees

o   After the document is rotated by 90 degrees, click on the same button again, to rotate the document by another 90 degrees (total 180 degrees).

o   Click the same button for the third time to rotate the document by 270 degrees.

o   Click the same button for the fourth time to rotate the document by 360 degrees (the document appears like what it had been originally).

  • Alternatively, click on button to rotate the document in anti-clockwise direction (left-side) by 90 degrees and so on.

Screenshot below displays a document rotated by 180 degrees:

  • Tick the ‘Rotate all pages’ checkbox to apply the rotation to all pages of a multi-page document.


  • You can use the mouse scroll button to increase or decrease the zoom level of the document view on the ‘Rotate document’ pop-up box, after document rotation.

  • You can drag the document around after zoom level increase/decrease to view different portions of the document on the ‘Rotate document’ pop-up box.

  • In the end, click on [Save] button to save the rotated view.

The main document on the Viewer application will now appear rotated. The following message appears in the middle of the Viewer screen, while document rotation is in progress.

 After user closes the document and then opens the same document again, the document will open in rotated view on the Viewer. For multi-page document, only the page which is rotated will appear rotated.
