1 sentence description of the problem (I was doing _________, and then __________ happened):

I was coding my seed dev project, and when I exited out of my code, my screen turned sideways.

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

  1. Open a project with around 9 scenes and the seed block
  2. Code something in the last scene
  3. Exit out of your code
  4. Wonder why your home button is now on the other side of your screen :(
    ….

I expected this to happen:

My screen to be normal

But instead this happened:

My screen turned sideways, including the home button. My screen size turned smaller in the editor as well.

Here’s a sweet screenshot:

you don’t have any gestures that turn rotation lock on horizontally (that’s oddly specific lol), right?

Nope!
My screen was normal, then I exited out from my code and it all turned horizontal.

I checked and my rotation lock was off, so…

Turn your screen 90° and see if that fixes it temporarily. I have not had this happen to me yet. The only time I had the screen rotate on me is when I log out (which I think is a another bug on its own).

I tried that, but it wouldn’t turn.
It’s fixed now, I had to restart my iPad.

Weird bug.

That is weird and very specific.

Hmm, have you restarted the app fully? That usually works with most bugs.

Oooohhhh don’t worry that’s happened to me Before, normaly while playing games just shut the app and come back

Weird that happens on a regular iPad on any app for me. Maybe it’s not Hopscotch’s problem?

No, it reverts back to normal when I’m not in HS…

Odd I’m not your man for technical stuff like this specially since it’s on an iPad.

That’s more of an iOS bug than a Hopscotch bug

I think that this might be an iOS bug too, just like Awesome_E said. It’s interesting though…
