I've read a few posts here, and I understand that there is a bug with importing vs adding articles with alternate layouts.
My question is more basic - and I've watched as much AdobeTV and Rufus on YouTube as I can find - I don't understand exactly how to create an alternate layout and get it into content viewer so that I can see what it does on my device.
I'm currently doing this on a Kindle Fire, CS6 on a Mac, all tools updated and functioning.
I've taken a simple indd doc, used liquid layout to create a horizontal version, then added an alternate layout - and "use current rules" is an option, which is nice, and I see a H and a V version. I added those to a new article and updated to my device. The article appears as a new page in the current folio, but it does not rotate.
My usual caveat; I must be missing something. Can anybody point me to some documentation on this?
There are links to videos about CS6 alternate layouts in this article:

Thanks, Bob. You've done it again. The magic answer was;
"All articles in the published folio must be portrait only, landscape only, or dual orientation."
I had vertical only articles mixed in with one that I was trying to make dual.
I created a new folio with that one dual article, and it works in two orientations now. Couldn't have been easier. Plus, I created the second orientation with liquid layout which is wicked cool.
