Is there a way to change orientation of PlayBook Simulator?

Hi there,

 

Sorry if this is a silly question.

 

I'm trying to optimize layout of my Android app for the PlayBook and I would like to see how it looks like in portrait mode. Is there a way to change orientation of PlayBook Simulator? By default it is landscape, I would love to see how my app looks like in portrait mode before I release it and, unfortunately, I don't have a physical device so need to rely on the Simulator.

 

I run the latest Simulator in VMware Fusion 4.1.1 on Mac OS Lion 10.7.3

 

Many thanks,

piokuc

Yes, swipe diagonally across the bottom right corner of the PlayBook Simulator.
