Save rotated documents during runtime

After a document is rotated, you can specify how it is saved.

Selecting the Save image rotation on disk option means that the original image is overwritten with the rotated image. The best practice is to use this option unless access rights for Document Review or Validation users prevent saving the image to disk.

Selecting the Save image rotated in XDocument means that the original incorrectly orientated image file is kept and the rotated image is discarded. The next module that processes the document is informed by the XDocument that the image needs to be rotated and by how much. The image is then rotated in memory before that document is processed.

You can configure your project to save rotated documents during runtime by following these steps:

  1. On the Project tab, in the Configuration group, select Project Settings Project Settings icon.
  2. Click the General tab to view the general settings.
  3. In the Rotation group, select one of the following Rotation during runtime values.
    • Save image rotation on disk

    • Save image rotation in XDocument

  4. Optionally, click OK to close the Project Settings window.
  5. Save the changes to your project.
