Is it possible to rotate the screen in the Canvas App? When my professors post their PDF of the lectures it would be nice to be able read it horizontally on my phone.
Yeah, currently we do not support landscape layout on phones. I sure would like to though, it's on my hit list!
Hi Jasmine Gutierrez...
I tested this out in my own sandbox course using my iPhone 6 Plus, and you are right...you cannot rotate your phone to view a PDF file in landscape mode. I am going to share your question with a couple of the mobile guys at Instructure who work closely on the mobile app to see if they would be able to weigh in. The solution may be that you'll need to create a Feature Idea to have this implemented, but I'll let the mobile team reply with a better response. Hope this helps, Jasmine!
Based on Benjamin Kraus' response, it sounds like you'll need to create a new Feature Idea if you'd like to see the landscape mode for mobile devices. Please take a look at this document for further information: How do I create a new feature idea?
This is currently up for voting and can be reached at Rotate App To Landscape View Please vote up so we may have this feature. thank you!
