Rotate Odd and Even Pages

Post by ckuhlmannHP » Mon Dec 10, 2018 6:20 pm

Hello All,

I am trying to figure out how I can create an action that selects pages by Portrait orientation. Then selects the odd pages and rotates them 90 degrees then takes the even pages and rotates them -90 degrees. I have tried many of the rotation changes with no success. The only one I could get to work changed orientation to landscape but it rotates all the page 90 degrees.

Any direction on what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks

Can you share your action list? Then we can see what was wrong with it so you can learn.

This Action List gives an example of a way to do it:

This seems to work for me (I had to think outside the box for this one 8-) )

Select pages (set to all pages and check Even)
Select pages by rotation (set to landscape)
NOT (this deselects all pages that has the orientation of landscape)
Set page rotation (set to 90 degrees)
Apply page rotation
Select pages (set to all pages and check Odd)
Select pages by rotation (set to landscape)
NOT (this deselects all pages that has the orientation of landscape)
Set page rotation (set to -90 degrees)
Apply page rotation

If you select by orientation first and then select all odd pages it doesn't work, but selecting the odd pages and then selecting by page orientation and adding a NOT to deselect the correctly oriented pages works.

Ah, seems I read your post to fast. LasseThid's solution looks like it should do the trick :)
