Edit PDF Document

I have opened a 90 page PDF doc in Draw 5.1.6.2. and need to edit. There are multiple pictures. I saved it as a Draw document and am now trying to edit. The Doc shows as Portrait, but should be Landscape. Changing the page format to landscape does not change the view. Trying to rotate the page does not work. Is there a solution?

Many thanks for OO Draw. It was the only tool that I found that allowed me to edit a PDF.

Draw has very limited editing capabilities for PDF's. If you are needing to do extensive editing Draw is not the solution you need. You probably should look elsewhere. I don't know of any freeware PDF editing tools offhand.

Thanks, Tom.
All I needed to do was re-orient several Pics and I was able to do this With OO Draw. It was painful working in portrait mode, but I managed.

Use a third party sorftware for this task, named: PDFtoolkit Builder. You can rotate pages with the PDFtk Builder.

Note:
The Draw application can handle only one page orientation per document, and it can change only the page orientation, but not together the orientation of the embedded objects.
If you have two page orientation (or the orientations are alternated) in your document, the draw will not handle them properly.

Portable versions of the free PDFtk Builder:
