Our ofc mgr has inherited several scanned documents that are quite lengthy.
Each is rotated 180 degrees. She only has Acrobat 7 Pro at her disposal. We
have looked at PDF security and find no reason why she cannot perform a Save
As, yet every time she rights a PDF and saves it, the PDF remains inverted.
I've tried to perform this magic myself, even giving the saved PDF a new
name, saving it to her Desktop, etc.

Any ideas why we cannot save the righted versions of these PDFs?
