Gyroscope Kobo Forma

Hi, does anyone know if there is a way to disable the gyroscope?
I don't see a way to do it in the settings, nor in the dev functions.

Thank you.

With a book open, bring up the menu options and you can see an icon at the top that looks like a jauntily-positioned smartphone with arrow indicators around it; you're options will pop up if you tap the icon.

Thanks for your help, although I found the option, and portrait mode with a padlock is selected, it still flips in portrait mode.
That option in my case, it seems that only serves to lock the screen rotation in a mode, but does not prevent it from staying in the position that interests me.

Yes, it will lock in portrait or landscape, but there is no way to lock it in 'buttons right' vs. 'buttons left' (when in portrait). Would be a good thing; being right-handed, I want it in portrait, buttons on the right at all times.
