You probably want to keep a backup of anything like that, unless you don't care if your other settings get lost (which at least for me wouldn't be a very big disaster — I change only a few defaults). The simplest way to create a backup is simply to make a copy (e.g., Ctrl+C followed by Ctrl+V). On most operating systems you'll then get a file like "settings.reader (copy).lua". I prefer to rename such a file to something slightly more meaningful, like settings.reader.lua.bck20170810

In any case, the important thing is you have something that works which you can restore if things go horribly wrong.

Once you have a backup, in this case you can probably just delete the relevant line to reset the orientation to its default value.

Regarding reading books in landscape mode and filemanager...


When I open the book either through "History" or "Open last document", and then switch to file manager, the file manager is also shown in lanscape mode.

If I instead open the same book either through the file manager (it doesn't matter if the file manager is in portrait or landscape mode) or automatically when I start my E-reader, and then switch to file manager, the file manager is instead shown in portrait mode.


I suppose it's not meant to be like this. Is this a known issue?

(I have Kobo Aura One (Nickel version 4.3.9845)).

Yes, it's a known issue, but considered to be a non-issue for the time being https://github.com/koreader/koreader...ment-282171070

For me, the orientation of the File Manager/Browser would get changed to landscape only when needed, to see more of a long file name. Otherwise I would want it in portrait mode, to have the most files listed on the page. Being able to switch back and forth could come in handy, in the browser, whereas a change while in the reader would last the whole book.

Luck;
Ken

When you long-press the current Portrait/Landscape buttons, it asks confirmation to set that mode as the default. I think this rotates the entire app.

I've found a new issue here. If you longpress the landscape button like above, the new books that you then open vill rotate clock-wise despite having set
DLANDSCAPE_CLOCKWISE_ROTATION = false in the "Advanced Settings".

The good news is there's already an issue: https://github.com/koreader/koreader/issues/3002

The bad news is that I don't see anything obviously wrong here.
