Support rotation on M1 Macs
Update to enable rotation to work correctly on M1 Macs.

+1 for screen rotation on Big Sur on M1 as well
Please Fix this. I desperately need this.
1.3 still locks up on rotation. This needs fixed.
Does the latest 1.3 address rotation at all?
Yes please. I switch between systems and displaylink has been a big help. But since I upgraded to an M1 Mac I've been limited to just 1 out of my 3 monitors.

+1 to fixing this ASAP. We all it's a big ask but for the price we way in devices, this should be a P0
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!
do we have an ETA for fix?
Agree, waiting for rotation that works with Big Sur, and Ideally rotation with normal working speed (I'm still running Catalina with DisplayLink legacy driver: rotation works, but as per other comments, painfully slow)
Any update when rotation on big sur with apple m1 chip is available?
I will gladly buy more displayport adapters if rotation worked.
This suggestion can be merged with this one: https://support.displaylink.com/forums/287786-displaylink-feature-suggestions/suggestions/42330457-fix-rotation-of-multiple-external-displays-on-maco
A must have! Any updates on this?
yes please. in dire need of this
Hi, Please let us know when this issue will be resolved for Mac M1 chip.
I am using DisplayLink Manager v1.2 on M1 Mac OS Big Sur 1.1, and screen rotation doesn't work for 1 of the monitors.
Is there any update on this?
Thanks a lot to Whomever rote the comment in October 20, 2020 with the steps to fix the issue (below)... it worked perfectly! I do have MacOs 10.15.7 Catalina ... The only extra things I had to do were
1) Uninstall DisplayLink previous version
2) Reboot and restart your docking station (I have a startech.com)
3) Quit any 3rd party tool you might have for Monitor management (I have "Display Menu")
4) Follow the below process, and wait for reboot to happen after the installation. It could take more than 5 min and it could looks like nothing is happening but DO NOT TURN OFF your computer.
========= ORIGINAL POST ==============
After 2 hours of troubleshooting, I finally was able to get rotation working on Catalina 10.15.5. My setup is 3 externals, 1 ultrawide as main and 2 smaller screens left and right. I have my left screen in portrait orientation.
1) Install Legacy driver 5.2.5 https://www.displaylink.com/downloads/file?id=1636
3) For me, I had to unplug and replug power of dock to get Dell D6000 dock to recognize all 3 externals
4) If for some reason System preferences is already open, CLOSE IT
5) Move your mouse to the screen that you want to rotate
6) On -that- screen, Apple Icon -> System preferences
7) Hold down Option + CMD keys and click 'Displays' in the System preferences
8) You should then see the 'Rotate' option -only- on the dialog on the screen that actually opened 'Displays' from System Preferences.
TLDR: The rotate option only seems to show on the screen that is actually opening system preferences -> Displays.
Really painful to figure this out but it works for me.
Thank you for this.. went back to Legacy driver on Mac 10.15. although as per above comments I found that it is really slow only when rotated... but al least its working!

Please fix this on M1 Macs--as previous commenter stated, display freezes and resets display settings when trying to set rotation.
Ditto. The display freezes and no longer updates after setting a rotation.
