But if you want to rotate more than 10 files at once, you can do so automatically in the pop-up window that will appear. Before you can do it, you will have to render all the pages to rotate them in the same direction.

Rotating an image in a PDF document only affects the image. Afterwards, you will be able to choose the page orientation (vertical or horizontal) with the newly rotated image.

Files can be organized in different ways. Drag and drop them however like; you can also arrange them alphabetically by clicking the () icon; and you also have the option of arranging them in inverse alphabetical order clicking the () icon.
