Support rotation on M1 Macs
Update to enable rotation to work correctly on M1 Macs.
DisplayLink Manager 1.6 or newer (https://synaptics.com/products/displaylink-graphics/downloads/macos) on macOS 12 Monterey now enables display rotation on Apple M1 computers (details in https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/1984314 )
For issues with this new functionality, please reach out to Technical-Enquiries@Synaptics.com so the team can investigate through a technical support ticket.
please support screen rotation! it is necessary for most of your consumer base that uses multiple monitors
Please enable screen rotation this is a huge issue.
How hard can it be?!!

Appreciate your great work :) . Adding myself to the waitlist for rotation support
I have so much appreciation for your work, please add rotation :]
Please support screen rotation. It will be tremendously appreciated.
Jumping on this. Pleaseee support this ASAP!
Yes, chiming in with my voice here too. Please implement screen rotation as soon as possible.
I would like to add that I almost didn't buy the DisplayLink adapter for this reason alone. I would imagine there are many others out there holding off on purchasing DisplayLink enabled products for their M1 Macs because of the lack of rotation support.

Ditto - support screen rotation please, ASAP. Just dropped £190 on an adaptor without realising that rotation wasn't supported. Wish I'd seen this thread beforehand. The implication of the marketing blurb is that DisplayLink does what M1 chips can't do; i.e. supports multiple monitors. It really has limited functionality - wish I'd bought an Intel 27" which actually did what I wanted.

Please support this feature. I need my monitor to be rotated. I would have not bought the connector if I knew this earlier.

Support screen rotation please!!!!
Please support screen rotation on the m1 MacBooks because now there are so many vertical videos out there and we really want one of our 2 external monitors vertical.
Please support screen rotation on the m1 chip. I just purchased an plugable USB 3.0 dual 4k docking station and I love its ability to support dual external monitors for m1 but just one thing I wish it had is screen rotation.

I just received my 4K monitor and set my old monitor through my USB 3.x Dock with DisplayLink, then I found there are no rotation options for the DisplayLink monitor :`(.
Please, I am thankful that DisplayLink makes M1 Mac possibly connect with 2nd external monitor, please kindly help add the rotation support!
If you're like me and you're here because you want to have 2 external monitors in clamshell mode and rotate one of them on a macbook pro M1, then i found a solution. Run one monitor through the displaylink and the other through a normal adapter. To do this, I use a USB-C adapter with USB ports and 1 HDMI. I connect the displaylink adapter to one of the USB ports on the adapter and the monitor I would like to rotate via the HDMI port. I then connect the other monitor to the displaylink adapter. Hope this helps as a workaround to anyone looking for a twin setup with rotate option on MacOS Big Sur 11.4 with the M1 chip.
