How to go landscape on the simulator?

I can't seem to figure out how to make the simulator switch from portait to landscape (assume BB's have that option, honesty allows me to say I don't own a BB device). I've set to orientation in the controller application to "right up", which makes it rotate to landscape position, but nothing changes on the virtual screen, let alone switching the resolution.

 

I'm using the BB10 simulator version 10.2.1.1925 on VMware Workstation 10. What I'm trying to test, is just the web browser. The website I'm making works fine in landscape on iOS and Android, so I'm pretty sure that's not what's causing it to not work. But I'd still like to test my website on BB in landscape :smileyhappy:

 

Anyone knows how to?

Swipe from the simulated bezel starting at the bottom right to the center.

Not quite. But you did push me into the right direction. The correct gestures appears to be:

 

Swipe on the virtual bezel from the bottom-right to the bottom-center, not touching the virtual screen.

 

Thanks anyway :smileyhappy:

Either works for me including just clicking in the bottom right, as stated in the documentation but whatever works for you.

This appears to be broken in the 10.3.0.698 simulator. I am completely unable to switch to landscape mode, either with the bottom-right tap that works with previous simulators, or using the controller app.
