Support rotation on M1 Macs
Update to enable rotation to work correctly on M1 Macs.
Delivery is currently scheduled for DisplayLink Manager release 1.6 for the end of November for Apple M1 silicon running macOS 12 Monterey.
Mac M1 - Big Sur 11.2
Screen rotation not working
M1 Macbook Air 16GB RAM 2TB
Big Sur 11.3.1
Mobile Pixel Trio Max Monitors
Definitely does not work.
Any attempt to rotate either of my external monitors causes the monitor being requested to rotate to freeze. I can hit "Gather Windows" and see the option to "Confirm" or "Revert" on my laptop's main screen, but if I Confirm, the monitor attempting to be rotated freezes in its current state and can't be accessed.
Also really need rotation for my workflows, Usually have my code on a vertical display!
Is the consensus that this is working for some people, and not for others? Why has admin not updated this conversation (or the latest driver)?

Screen rotation finally works!
At least for me. Tried it a few days ago on a Dell monitor at work and got nada but when I used it on a new portable monitor I got, it works perfectly.
Computer: M1 MacBook Air, 8c GPU, 16 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD
Monitor: Lepow 15.6 inch Portable Monitor, 1920x1080 Full HD, USB-C connection
I check this page a few times a week in hopes of an update so I can buy the product again… months later, still no update.
Hopefully Apple comes out with their next m1/m2 that doesn’t limit your monitors so I don’t have to deal with this DisplayLink crap.
This post has been up for a year (last April), tons of comments with everyone having the same issue, no fix, no work around, nothing :(
Still not working on MacOS 11.3.1 (Big Sur)
An interesting observation is that when you select a rotation for a screen, the 'Arrangement' panel will show that screen in it's rotated orientation - but the screen itself does not rotate.
$300 on a StarTech dock and there is no rotation?!
Still not solved.
I cant believe this is still not resolved - surely this is basic functionality
I would NOT have bought my DisplayLink device, had I know this was not working. Please fix this ASAP, it's crippling many people's normal workflows.

I also desperately need this, is there any way to sign up for updates when this gets solved?
Please fix the screen rotation, it is a basic need for everyone!
The rotation does not work. This should not be flagged as "COMPLETED'". I have M1 Macbook pro Big Sur v11.2. the lastest drivers don't do anything to fix this.
Wouldn't let me register on the forums as it said it was spam, but this is the most needed feature!!
