Samsung Chromebook switches to Landscape when using pedal
#1
I'm Running Mobilsheets Pro on a Samsung 12.3inch Chromebook Pro.  It's the one that lets you swivel the keyboard around to the back of the screen and so it becomes a tablet (with touch and pen input capable). (Model 510C24-K01)

When I switch to tablet mode, and rotate it into portrait orientation, it works fine.  UNTIL I connect a Donner bluetooth footpedal.  Then it immediately switches to Landscape mode (i.e., displays sideways) and I can't figure out how to get it back into Portrait.  But if I turn off the pedal, it switches back to Portrait (or whatever the orientation).

Has anyone seen this?  Anyone else using the Samsung Pro?

Thanks for any help.

I think a couple of threads discussed things similar to this:

I'm not sure exactly what the solution is (if there is one) for solvilng this problem with Chromebook devices. From what I've gathered communicating with users, it happened after a specific update of Chrome OS. Many users reverted to an older version to get things working the way it used to. I'm not sure if there is another option at this point. Does anyone with a Chromebook know of a solution for this issue?

Thanks,
Mike

There is no permanent solution at this point. You can manually change the orientation of the screen (CTRL-SHIFT-REFRESH or through settings), but it will still stay in desktop mode. Here is a link to the bug:

https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/iss...?id=882410

It has been confirmed as a bug, but as of version 71 it hasn't been fixed.
