    Hi Mac People!

    Is there some way to rotate a page, left or right, while previewing as cover flow using the Finder?

    At the moment I am doing this using Devonthink Pro Office, but for this I first need to index or import all these files into Devonthink Pro Office. screenshot dtpo rotate right.png This is ok, but I would really like to be able to do this in the Finder.
    Maybe anyone knows an add-on or some finder replacement tool like Path finder, TotalFinder or Forklift can do this?

    You can do that with the (free) program Preview, inside your applications folder. I just did it, with a Samsung TV PDF file that is on my desktop, and it worked fine. I am using the latest version of Mojave, V10.14.2.

    Thanks for helping out!
    I know that Preview can do this.
    My point is that I'm searching for a way to rotate left or right from within the FINDER preview pane..

    Even if a Hazel or other workflow would be needed..

    Thanks anyway!

    Maybe an Automator action could achieve this.
