10.4: How to rotate OS X's display
Authored by: auricgoldfinger on May 15, '05 10:19:03AM

Well... I changed it and took by accident 180deg. After changing, the option was gone, so I was in a little trouble suddenly :) But quitting system prefs and alt-click brought the rotate back and I changed it to normal. I'll try 90deg in a moment. Right now, the anti-aliasing is rather screwed up...

10.4: How to rotate OS X's display
Authored by: bakalite on May 15, '05 11:29:18AM

Guys, there is no alt on the mac. There is the Command (or Apple) key, the option key, and the control key.

In this case the poster means option. To get the rotate menu, do the following:

Close System Prefs.
Open System Prefs.
Hold down the option key while selecting Displays

On my Original Titanium G4 Powerbook the rotate menu shows up automatically for the cinema display, but not for the internal monitor. Doing the option trick brings it up for both. Rotating the display on the powerbook is no problem. To rotate it back to normal, just follow the steps above again.

That's funny. My option key clearly also says "alt".

FYI, alt is used on a lot of non-US Apple keyboards in place of opt.
