Default No Rotate Display Option

Running a new thunderbolt Macbook Pro, 10.6.7; neither set of drivers (1.6/1.7) gives me an option to rotate the screen connected to the USB 2.0

Any solutions would be appreciated (and if any additional information is needed, let me know)

I am running new 2011 Macbook Pro 15" with Mac OS X 10.6.7. I have my primary monitor running over thunderbolt/display port connection, and I'm able to see Rotate option for that monitor.

I'm running two other monitors (HP 24" and HP 20"), over two separate Plugable uga-2k-a with Display Link DL-195 chips. Neither one gives me an option to Rotate my displays. I have tried latest available drivers (27 April 2011 - 1.6) and the 1.7 beta 1 has been taken down right now due to bugs.

I have also tried Carlo's suggestion to use Command+Option keys while selecting Display options, but that doesn't work either.

Any suggestions for allowing me to rotate my displays?

Carlo's workaround did the trick for me with a 2011 Thunderbolt MBP 15" under SL 10.6.8 and DisplayLink 1.6 version.

The Cmd+Option trick doesn't work for me either:

* SL 1.6.8
* one external monitor connected through HIS MV III Adapter
* MBpro 8,1

Any ideas?

This might mean something is wrong with your setup, however, to get the option to rotate, I used an app called display rotation menu.

http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/269...-rotation-menu

once I used this to rotate my display, the option came back in display preferences, allowing me to delete display rotate as I didn't need it anymore. Hope this helps for you.

That did it! Thank you very much.

Interestingly now the 'rotation' item also show up in the display preferences.
