I've been using CM on my kindle for a long time now and I'm very happy with it. However, one thing that Amazon's OS has over CM is the navigation bar functionality. The Fire 2 has a relatively small display and resolution and like most devices it's using a wide-screen format. The problem that comes with those qualities is that when the device is in landscape the navigation bar takes up a lot more display real estate than in portrait and further reduces the already limited viewing height in landscape. The way that this was handled IIRC was to have the navigation bar remain in place whatever the orientation of the device and just flip the icons accordingly. I believe this is how it's handled in phones as well.

My question and request is whether there's a way to achieve the same effect on CM so that users may choose whichever option the prefer? Thank you in advance.
