I’ll take a look. What iPhone are you using btw?

Iphone xs max eunning ios 13.2

I must be doing something wrong here… Can you send me a screenshot of before you rotate, and after you rotate? If you can record a video of the whole process it’d be even better.


This is the date menu before rotating

Notice the text cursor is in place now after rotating

But after i hide the keyboard and rotate back



I hope this helps

Doesn’t look like the images are showing up – you can directly paste/drag them to upload to the forum.

Does this work i can see what I uploaded. Is there a direct email If this does not work?

OK I can see that happening on my side. Seems to be some kind of iOS bug that we’re running into…

For a workaround, you can close the keyboard by pressing “Done”, rotate to Landscape, and rotate back. We’ll see if this can be fixed through a native patch.

I’m seeing this too. Will this be fixed? It’s been around for a while. Makes the app feel really buggy and unoredictable. I’m laying down on a couch or bed and even accidentally rotate my phone and boom, Half of my screen disappears.

I concur. Devs if it’s hard to fix the landscape issue can you please implement an option to ALWAYS portrait mode? Here’s my use case:

I’m standing. I look at my phone, tap an item to type some stuff. I look up, from my phone to think, let my arm relax to my side. Phone goes landscape mode. DynaList activates the above bug. I look at my phone again and it returrns to portrait. This is an extremely common occurrence.

I don’t use landscape anyway, too few lines of text. If I could have an app-specific option to never rotate DynaList, I would be satisfied.

Seems like we’ve never gotten around to a fix for this. I’ve taken a look but I wasn’t able to fix it quickly.

As for locking into portrait mode, I’ve always just used iOS’s native orientation lock. Maybe that’s not desirable for your use case but I found that I’ve often disabled screen rotation precisely because of the issue you described even in other apps.

Yes but that’s a pain because I want other apps to go sideways. And I switch back and forth.

Understandable, we’ll see what we can do on our next iOS release.

Fixed! Will be released in 1.4.4.
