Nice to meet you, *****!
Does it show you in a landscape even if you rotate your device?

Customer Replay


Open your book. Tap anywhere at the top of the screen, then tap the “Aa” icon to access the Display Settings menu. Tap “Layout.” Then, under Orientation select which one you prefer

There should be just "Layout" in the title

Customer Replay

My options are margin spacing alignment columns and then I have an orientation lock

Do you mean you cannot select the Orientation?

Customer Replay

I have an orientation lock option that I can either turn it on or off

Is it turned off now?
It should be turned off
I mean, unlocked

Customer Replay

Okay I turned it off so hopefully that means it will leave my pages and portrait?
