iOS 11 Rotation Freeze

Post by carich » Sun Nov 05, 2017 11:58 am

When you use the new dock-based app switcher to switch to iGigBook from another app that won't rotate, iGigBook no longer rotates with the iPad display. If you go to the home screen and start the app (the old way), it regains its ability to rotate. The new app switcher is quicker on the bandstand, but I find iGigBook frequently stops rotating (just when you realized in the middle of a chart that there's two pages).

What app that won't rotate were you using?

I use Lemur, a generic OSC controller app, to control an audio interface mixer (RME TotalMix FX) from an iPad on the bandstand. Lemur is locked in landscape mode when using the TotalMix template, and when I dock-switch directly from Lemur to iGigBook (without going to the Home screen), iGigBook starts in landscape mode and won't rotate (until I start it again from the Home screen).

Another interesting observation... Lemur with the TotalMix template actually, but will only rotate 180 degrees (so it stays in landscape mode). After I dock-switch from Lemur to iGigBook, iGigBook isn't completely frozen, but will only rotate 180 degrees. It feels like some setting is inherited when you dock-switch without going to the Home screen?

I don't have the app that you mentioned however using GarageBand which is locked in landscape I'm not experiencing a problem with iGigBook rotating.
