Problem using a mouse as foot pedal
#1
I'm using MobileSheets on an Asus 302CA Chromebook in tablet mode with a Bluetooth mouse in place of a footpedal.  My problem is that as soon as the mouse is connected, the tablet switches from portrait to landscape mode. I can override that by applying a rotation in the Android System Preferences, but doing that every time I use MobileSheets is a hassle. Could the 'use mouse as pedal' setting in MobileSheets override this behaviour and make the Chromebook stay in portrait mode?

It's a bug in the Chrome OS that started around version 69. I have version 71 and they haven't fixed it yet, but there is a bug report on it and, hopefully, they are working on it.

Not fixed in Chrome OS 72. Any chance of a fix for this on MobileSheets? E.g. a settings option that keeps it in portrait even when a mouse is connected?

There is already a setting for that. Go to Settings->Display Settings->Device Orientation Lock. If that orientation lock setting does not work, then there is nothing I can do. That is the extent of the control my app has over the device orientation.

Thanks Mike, I have that option set and it doesn't solve the problem. The only thing that does is to set the screen orientation to 'Manual, rotated 270 degrees', and that is a hassle to apply and remove for each session.
