Screen orientation problem - always landscape

Hi, 

 

I am currently trying to create an app for tablet that works in portrait mode. 

 

I have set the screen size to custom 1536 x 2048 to get the correct resolution. 

 

When I publish the app and open it on iPad I have the problem that it will always stay in landscape orientation despite the height and width being set for portait. 

 

I have tried using a standard format and even with portrait orientation selected and orientation lock slider on on, it will always open in landscape mode on my tablet. 

 

Any suggestions? 

 

Thank you 🙂

Re: Screen orientation problem - always landscape

Hi @GamerGirl123 ,

Do you want to create a responsive layouts canvas app on your side?

 

Please consider turn off the "Scale to fit" option and the "Lock orientation" option within "Screen size + orientation" settings of App settings of your app.

 

In addition, based on the needs that you mentioned, I think the responsive layouts functionality could achieve your needs. Please check and see if the following article or blog could help in your scenario:
