I'm putting this as a quick question and answer as it surprises me it's not answered here:

Opening a document using the default document viewer in 22.04LTS (Evince) but the document is malrotated - how to rotate it 90 or 180 degrees clockwise or counter-clockwise quickly? The drop-down menu only gives the option to rotate 90 degrees clockwise - is there a quick keyboard shortcut?

1 Answer 1


Ctrl + (left arrow) will rotate 90 degrees left

Ctrl + (right arrow) will rotate 90 degrees right

This is obviously not saving the rotated image (which is answered elsewhere) but rotates how it's displayed.
