Email application supports landscape mode in Opening a pdf attachment with mail-app in "normal" mode (i.e., not landscape orientation) allows me to rotate the opened pdf as I wish. However, opening the attachment with mail-app in landscape mode locks the orientation of the opened pdf file to landscape (i.e., it is not possible to rotate it). Is this an intended feature?

Email app just calls documents app to show the file, there's no orientation lock, this works fine for me, but once documents app was not rotating until I swipe it away and bring it back, can you confirm that is the same your are experiencing ?

When opening the document in documents app everything is working fine (i.e., no orientation locks). The problem occurs when the mail app is in landscape mode and calls the documents app, then the document rotation becomes locked to landscape mode

Did you tried to swipe away the document when open from email app and bring it again to the screen to check if the lock is still present ? Anyway is a bug in documents app.

Works fine if I swipe away the document and bring it up again. The orientation lock disappears after minimizing the documents app
