I have a complex phone app, with around 20 pages that I need to convert to tablet.
This tutorial (https://toddbaginski.com/blog/how-to-convert-a-powerapp-from-one-layout-to-another/) doesn't seem to work any longer.
Looking for suggestions on how to quickly (relatively) convert the layout, resolution and orientation to tablet (landscape) from phone (portrait).
Solved! Go to Solution.
This still works although using the Power App CLI makes it a lot easier the properties config is now called CanvasManifest.json
This is awesome solution that I used in the past. Things changed since then - is there any way we can update this for 2022? Inability of changing layout for the apps (especially created automatically) looks like glaring omission on MS side 😞 neglected for years
I used this guide and was successful in converting my canvas tablet app to a mobile app.
I used it too. I cannot see properties.json anymore - we have 2 json files now (manifest.json and another one deeper in the folder structure) but i am not sure how to go about them.
I see, make sure you are using 7Zip to complete this. That is how I finally got it to work.
Also, check out this link for an updated process:
Hi, it sounds like you have Exported the app rather than used the Save As > This Computer method.
I have just tested these steps as I described above and they are still working.
