    So here is a strange one: I have a document that is scanned sideways. So to read it, I normally go into EZ PDF while holding the tablet in portrait mode, put the rotate lock on, and then turn to landscape mode. Works like a charm.

    Until today. I set the rotate lock to on, turned the tablet, and the image rotated! I left EZ PDF, and in every other app the rotate was locked--just not in the one app where I needed it to be. Tried rebooting, but same issue.

    Is this a bug in EZ PDF? What kind of bug overrides the rotation lock?

    Sometimes happens to me too with some apps (Android Comic Viewer in particular). Its weird, yes, but I think it has something to do with the app itself.

    I have had this happen to me too, both in the built in email app and in Perfect Viewer. I close out of the app, reopen the app, flip the switch off and then back on again and it starts working again...most peculiar.
