I have a Vivid running CM11 (Jan 15th build). I can't get Launcher to stay in landscape mode. When I put the Vivid into the HTC dock, it automatically goes into Landscape mode, but I can't for the life of me find a setting to get it to do that without the dock. Any ideas?

Trebuchet does not support landscape mode... Switch launchers... Or maybe see if xposed has a workaround

This is the albinoman887 CM11 unofficial from Jan15th. He's using launcher3. It apparently does support landscape, as it will go to landscape mode when in the HTC Dock.

I did find an app that will force it to landscape mode when charging. Which, since this is for a car, will work fine. I was really hoping to make it rotation-based - like a mini tablet. My Nexus 7 with CM11 supports landscape mode based only on rotation, so I don't see why a phone couldn't. Though it clearly isn't built into the phone as standard...

I'm running the CM11 from March 13 and having no problem at all with landscape/portrait. I am using a different launcher (Solo) that I like a lot better. You might want to give it a try, since it is free on Play Store.
