Document Rotation

To rotate a document, use the following commands.

  • Rotate Clockwise

    Rotates the document clockwise through 90 degrees. To perform this command, right-click the viewed document, choose the Rotate Clockwise item, or press Ctrl + Shift + Add.

  • Rotate Counterclockwise

    Rotates the document counterclockwise through 90 degrees. To do this, invoke the context menu by right-clicking the document, choose the Rotate Counterclockwise item, or press Ctrl + Shift + Subtract.


The PDF Viewer does not support rotating individual pages. You can use PDF Document API instead for this purpose.

The PDF Document API is a part of the Office File API or Universal subscription only, and is not included in the WinForms subscription. Please refer to the DevExpress Subscription page for pricing information.

To specify the rotation angle in code, use the PdfViewer.RotationAngle property.
