Default [Q] Rotation question

Hello, Samsung users! I have a question for you..
I wonder what happens if you open an app that has fixed rotation and then split the screen to open another app that supports both rotations.. What happens when device is rotated? And what happens if you open the same apps in different order and rotate the device? And what if you open a fixed portrait app and a fixed landscape app?

I just don't know how Samsung handles that kind of weird problems

Anyone? I don't need any solution to any problem! I'm just curious about how Samsung handled rotation for different apps!

As far as I know there are no programs without rotation for the multiwindow. Not in stock 4.1.2. So Samsung solved this problem before it begins

No. There are only apps with rotation feature. You can't put an app to the multiwindow sidebar wich can't rotate.
