    Problem with screen rotation - touch layer not rotating


    Hi,
    I have an X220 Tablet and I am experiencing the following problem: When I rotate my screen, the touch and pen layer do not rotate correspondingly. That means that the touch input is not occurring when it should be.
    Example: I rotate my screen orientation from horizontal to horizontal (reversed). When I touch the right edge, the touch input is instead registered on the left edge.
    To put it simply. the layer registering touch input does not rotate no matter what.

    Furthermore, when I add a second external screen, the touch + pen input is registered on the external screen instead of the actual tablet screen (which I'm touching)

    I would very much appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks very much.

    I have a RM slate and I don't have any rotation. Very sad.

    Screen rotation didn't work on my Acer W500 until I installed the appropriate drivers from the manufacturer's website. Now, rotation is smooth and faster than it was on 7.

    I installed the drivers from RM's website like I saw mentioned on another forum, but it still doesn't work. Rotation isn't anything that big for me on a Windows tablet. I'm mostly using mine for work and just a few games that don't rotate.
