No Landscape Mode on iPad

Rob Fleming shared this problem 6 years ago
Solved

I have built an iPad app prototype where I have exported the HTML and put it into Xcode. In Xcode, I selected only landscape mode for playback. However, the prototype will not rotate to landscape mode at all when previewing on iPad or iPad Simulator in Xcode. I am wondering if I need to edit the HTML code somewhere to force the landscape only orientation. So far, there is nothing more I can think of to change in Xcode. Please help! It will be so great if I can fix this. :) Thanks!

You can use the event type 'gesture -> on orientation landscape' and make it go to a different set of screens in landscape layout.

Hi Victor,


I am making a prototype for Android. most pages/screens in the prototype are portrait. Considering the above answer, how to I make a landscape screen, inside a prototype that is mostly in portrait orientation?


also, if there is a way, how can I make the simulator display this action (because I cannot turn the simulator on its side)

Hi Nathan,


You can change the orientation of one screen of your prototype if you select the desired screen canvas and then in the Properties panel set the 'Orientation' dropdown to 'Landscape'


In order to simulate the rotation of your device, you must turn on the 'Rotation' tool of the simulator: go to 'Simulation Settings' (in Simulate menu or the icon next to 'Simulate' button) and check the option 'Show device tools' and 'Rotate device'.


I hope it helps.

Did you get my response via email?


I cannot find the

Hello,


I have not received any clear answer. I'm running 5.7.0, and I do not see anywhere to change the page orientation to 'landscape'.


Can you include a screens shot of where that button is in the version I'm using?


Thank you

It's an option available in version 6 only. You can download that version from our web site.

Hello. I'm working on a iPad prototype in portrait mode but all widgets (as status bar) are in landscape mode and can't be resized

Unfortunately you'll need to manually resize those widgets by selecting various parts of the widget in the outline palette, and resizing them to fit in portrait mode.
