Phone simulators and screen orientation

I just downloaded two simulators for the newest Torch phones and noticed that they are broken. At least they are on my PC anyway. When rotating the simulators to landscape everything stays in portrait mode like nothing ever happened. CSS media queries for portrait orientation in a WebWorks app are ignored as well.

 

Is it just me or are the simulators broken? And if so, any chance this will be fixed soon? Without being able to test screen orientation changes I'm pretty much stuck with some last issues in my app...

Re: Phone simulators and screen orientation

Hello TheMarco,

 

If you are using 9800/9810 simulators make sure that your slider is not opened (on the menu bar click Simulate and make sure that Open Slider option is not checked). You can also try to tilt blackberry using options (Simulate -> Tilt Blackberry).

 

Best Regards
Kamil

Re: Phone simulators and screen orientation

I tried all that but no matter what I do, the UI does not tilt. I've had several other people try and report the same problem.
