What kind of device are you using? (Also include iOS version, and Hopscotch version)
iPhone 12,8 iOS 16,3.50.4
1 sentence description of the problem (I was doing _________, and then __________ happened): I was making a project that needed landscape so I went into my project that had landscape and turned my phone

Steps that the Hopscotch team can take to reproduce my problem every time:

  1. Make sure your on a phone with portrait lock off
  2. Go to a project with landscape
  3. Try turning it, and it should be difficult
  4. If you managed to get it to landscape exit the project.
  5. Quit any pop up and it goes back to portrait.

I expected this to happen:
Turn to landscape
But instead this happened:
You need lots of effort for it to get to landscape. When quitting the project it goes to portrait and quickly changes to landscape and says change profile picture. When exiting that out it goes back to portrait.
Here’s a sweet screenshot:
I couldn’t because it is hard to even get it to landscape

I didn’t experience this problem, but I’ve only ever gone to landscape in published projects. I take it this happens when you’re in one of your drafts? (First)

The behavior is weird, but you need to wait until the project starts playing before the app lets you go to landscape. If you do it while editing or while it’s loading, it won’t let you turn to landscape.

This is not the solution. It still wont work when you exit a project, it just flips back.

I know it’s not a permanent solution, but the workaround does work:

Change profile picture doesn’t happen for me, so I can make a landscape project

It won’t work on a draft or not on one…
It’s been almost 6 months and nothing has fixed it.

Hopscotch should support iPhone landscape when you’re playing a project (though there is bug with that in the new scenes update — iPhone can't play project in landscape (again)).

Otherwise there is no landscape on iPhone, when editing a project or browsing the community.
