I have auto rotate the enabled on my nexus 7 and when the home screen rotates to landscape (sideways) it squashes everything is on the home screen. I am running android 42 with xenon hd rom I am also using apex launcher. Attached are normal and landscape mode pictures.

lol yea im sure ive had at least one device that when you setup a home screen go portrait then back landscape you would have half your widgets added to a new homescreen. jellybean is soposed to solve this issue but still not all app widgets are 100% resizable

Hi, Natenatenate...

You mention you are using Apex...

The trick with Apex (if you want to use it in both landscape and portrait) is to ensure the 'grid' setup is identical in each.

I have found a 6 x 6 icon arrangment for both landscape and portrait optimal, with margins both vertical and horizontal set to 'small'.

...and do not use the Tablet UI setting...

Below are my screenshots...

In landscape, note how the dock bar and search bar are now down the left and right hand sides of the screen respectively... this preserves 'aspect ratio' and negates the squashed effect you report.

Finally, the dock bar can support up to 7 icons (at 100% size), with the dock bar horizontal margin set to 'small'.

Hope this helps...

Rgrds,
Ged.
