Have a rotating option for macOS 10.15 Catalina
There should be a driver where you have an option to rotate the screen for use on both sides. The Display monitor can only go on one side for Mac and it sucks because you should be able to use rotation for how you want your screen to be.
Rotation on macOS 10.15 Catalina is available via the classic driver available in the download section, in Legacy Releases.
DisplayLink Manager app v1.1+ offers rotation on macOS 11 Big Sur onwards.
Running MacOS Catalina v 10.15.6
Uninstalled DisplayLink Manager v1.1

Release notes for DisplayLink macOS Build: 1.1.91 (671a2c0) state:
- No support for rotated DisplayLink screens in macOS Catalina 10.15.x
- Screen rotation is now available in macOS 11.0 Big Sur Public Beta.
Why would you add screen rotation to an OS that's not GA yet, when clearly 95%+ are still on Catalina 10.15 with no rotation support? :/
yes, the Ctl+Opt is only for the main screen
Hello! When can we have the new version to enable the rotation of external screen?
catalina user commented
ya.. that same goes with me.. i'm using macos catalina, and rotation only works on main display .. not extended display....
Is there any solution I can rotate my external USB AOC second monitor in my iMac Catalina?
Fernando Pessoa commented
This was working before (Mojave, old drivers). Installed Catalina and new Mac OS app and woops no more support for the rotation screen... this is annoying.
Is there any update on this? Is there going to be a new drive that will allow rotation?

I posted an extensive comment a few minutes ago and I agree, I can't rotate either of the Trio (external left and right) screens. I'm operating a Mac with latest Catalina OS. While I can't rotate the screens electronically I wanted to note if you pressed the touch point close to the middle of the side bezel you'll eventually get a selection of 6 or 8 options to manually set, one of which includes the option to rotate the external screen by 90 degree increments. I can make it change, the dialogue box actually rotates as I would like it to... but the rest of the screen remains upside down. There is a second touchpoint on the bezel which I think is for "entering" a selection. No instructions so its trial and error and at that, its not exactly clear. No response desired. Simply sharing what little I know.
The other rotation method using CMD+OPT only affects the main screen. There is no rotation option for the external display.
