Kobo Libra H20 landscape orientation issue

I always use my Libra H20 reader locked in landscape mode. For some reason it ALWAYS starts upside down (with buttons on top instead of on bottom). Is there any way to make it boot right side up?

My forma does that whenever I plug it in the wall charger, and sometimes when I plug it into my laptop. But it's different circumstances to your example in that i keep the sleep cover on it, and rarely turn it off.

I find it a curious thing and haven't worked it out either.

Same here on my Libra 2. I hope it will be fixed in a future firmware update...

Ditto with my Libra H2O. I'm a lefty, holding it in portrait.
I guess turning on a Kobo is like dropping a slice of bread and butter.

I have noticed something similar on the Libra 2.

I like to read in Landscape mode, with buttons at bottom. If the reader goes into sleep mode, then I try to awaken it while holding the reader in landscape mode, it will awaken with text orientated in portrait mode.

I then have to rotate the reader to portrait then back to landscape to get the correct display. See the video below...

YES! That seems to be the default position. I would like to lock not only the portrait vs. landscape option, but also the orientation relative to the buttons.

I'd also love to see the home screen be able to change to the landscape arrangement.

Yep. Same thing on my Forma. It really frosts my shorts. And, if I don't lock it in landscape mode, it will invariably start up in portrait mode (even though I'm holding it in my default landscape mode). And, to get it out of that mode, I have to rotate it first so it flips to the "other" portrait mode and then rotate it into landscape mode (so it's even worse than what Karellen has in that video, above).
