Works great on my new MacBook Air 11! Now I only need to find a utility to rotate the trackpad, too.

yeah - likewise - any leads on a way to rotate the trackpad? Have not found any way yet myself.

Perhaps this will do what you seek:

Honestly, I have no affiliation with any of these developers. I just saw the aforementioned program and was curious. MU had a link to DRM, so I checked it out as well. Saw your posts and thought you might want the info. I haven't tried either program.

I just wanted to add that I emailed the developer with my problem and he kindly replied shortly after with some feedback and a request for my system profile to further look in to!

Kudos to the dev for excellent support... I can't even get such treatment with apps I pay for! :)

** WARNING**

Down loaded & installed this on a macmini duo core with OS 10.5.2
Screwed up everything. Unable to fix/uninstall & I ended up cloning back from my external hard drive in order to recover.

This is very nice. It would be great if the hotkey could also be set as a toggle between two settings (otherwise you always have to use the menu to get back to portrait mode).

Currently I use an AppleScript that toggles between portrait/landscape settings on my external monitor, and which I trigger using QuickSilver. If the keystroke could be used as a toggle, I would ditch my current solution and use this program.

Now this is what I call essential freeware. It does what it's designed to and no more. No muss, no fuss.

The only thing I could possibly ask for would be for the option to apply global keyboard shortcuts for rotating the displays.

Something like command-option-right for rotating 90 degrees right, command-option-left for 90 degrees left. And maybe include number keys if you have more than one display... I'm sure the developer can think of something more elegant though.

Thank you for the great work. This is an excellent piece of software.

Hi.

Thank you for providing a very useful utility for free!

I'm using this on my internal display, and am having trouble. The actual display rotation itself is fine, but the cursor aspect stays the same, and therefore from a portrait perspective; up equals left, down equals right, left equals down, and right equals up. So, as can be seen, the cursor aspect simply remains normal, as if the display was in landscape mode.

Is there a way to to change this?

Thanks!

It's always best to contact the developer directly via the developer's website, because some/many/most developers do not read posts here.

I got soooo excited about the release of this handy tool only to be followed with the following information:

LCD2690WUXi
Rotation Not Supported

Is this because of my video card?
