[done] Disable screen rotation

Post by Frogfoot » Sat Apr 30, 2016 11:17 am

Hi, is there a setting somewhere that I can't find that allows the screen to be locked in portrait mode? Currently I have to toggle this in the system settings ( which is not ideal as some other apps need to be in landscape mode)

Cheers
Tom

Hi,
Unfortunately there isn't any option like that in the application right now.
Here are other ways to control this (in addition to the Android settings):
- On my Samsung device I can control this in one click from the top bar notification panel (see "Screen rotation" option here), maybe other brands have something similar;
- On my HTC, I do have a small "switch" widget installed on one desktop to control this setting (again, maybe other brands also have this).
I agree this is not perfect and brand dependent...
If those solutions don't suit you and if you really need to lock the orientation in one mode, I can add an user setting.
Best regards

Hi, A user setting in the user_settings.conf file , or option in the main settings menu would be great, if it can be added without too much trouble.

Version 2.0.1 is now available with an user setting for this:

Code: Select all

core.screen.orientation=PORTRAIT
Let me know if you have any issue with it.
