In an attempt to create a landscape iPad device, I copied the Adobe iPad device (in portrait orientation) & changed the resolution on the copy from 768 x 1024 to 1024 x 768. My new copy still displayed as if it was in portrait orientation. Then I double clicked it & then the device changed to was must have been an xbox or something like that with an oddly shapped controler.
Have you also changed the resolution for Bitmap, Video and Web accordingly?
As for the Xbox-like controls showing up, I too could reproduce that. It will need to be investigated by the team, could be a bug.
I had not changed the resolution for Bitmap, Video and Web. I guess I thought changing it once would work for all the device in all modes. So I changed in all those modes & it is now in landscape. Yeah! However, I had to make another copy of the profile in order to get the option to edit it. I'll open another topic on that.
