Fix rotation of multiple external displays on MacOS
Currently the 'workaround' specified on DisplayLink forum to enable rotation (open System Preferences with Opt-Cmd pressed) does not enable rotation scheme on all external displays (only allows rotation on internal laptop display..) This provides no assistance to setting rotation for DisplayLink devices.
Please make the change to driver to allow different resolutions (rotated resolutions) on your displaylink devices so that MacOS Catalina etc. users can benefit from rotation on big external displays.

+1 to fixing this ASAP. This kills software engineers.
Please update your software so we can rotate our displays connected by Displaylink to portrait mode. Considering the cost of the adapter/dongle, one would expect this to work out of the box!

I'm with Martin here. I currently have the new 13" Macbook Pro M1 chip (which I know has been causing fits and Apple should allow more than 1 external monitor), but given DisplayLink works great for the monitor, not being able to rotate my monitor 90 or 180 degrees is a HUGE buzzkill when I was so close to the light at the end of the tunnel. This would be EPIC if this could be fixed like the older versions. PLEASE HELP US HUNG OUT TO DRY BY APPLE!
