#4211 closed defect (fixed)

Write only supports default screen orientation

Reported by: garycmartin Owned by: godiard
Priority: High Milestone:
Component: Write Version: 0.97.x
Severity: Major Keywords: 13.1.0
Cc: garnacho Distribution/OS: OLPC
Bug Status: New


13.1.0 build 11: XO-1.75

The canvas of the Write only draws correctly when used in the default orientation. As soon as you rotate to the other three screen orientations 90deg, 180deg, or 270deg, the canvas does not refresh, usually just leaving a trail of vertical insert cursor lines if you try typing. Switching to a different Activity and back will leave its content onscreen where Writes canvas should be.

1) Rotate screen to Portrait orientation
2) Start Write
3) Start typing some input


No text is shown, just
| cursor characters left behind as you type.

Write should work in all 4 of the possible screen rotations.

I think this one is important.

I have made the following observation when reproducing:

  • switch to ebook mode
  • start Write
  • type something with the OSK

---> the characters appear fine

  • rotate screen
  • type something with the OSK

---> the place where there are some updates is some characters before to where the cursor is, it does not start at the same place and the characters are just '|'

  • rotate screen

---> now the characters I typed in the previous orientation are shown
