If you want to tell the visitor, that your tour is optimised for landscape-format - and he should turn his mobile device from portrait to landscape direction, you can use a text-hint with a close-button.

More nice is an automatic displaying of such text, this can be done with the logic actions.

Attached as component, feel free to test and use.

If you delete the "is mobile = true" than you can test it also with your desktop computer and just drag your browser window from landsacpe to portrait format and it shoud be displayed!

Hi Soulbrother,

Instead of a text-warning, you could use an icon to convey the message. This is one I created for a tour. If you like it, feel free to use it.

The image in this message is a png, in the attached zip you find an svg version (invalid filetype to post here it seems, so I zipped it).

regards, Frank

Is there any way to force the user to rotate the mobile horizontally?

Hi,
Use the image with a visible logic block.

In the images properties deselect visible then use the above logic clock, when the mobile device is set to portrait the image will show.
On a desktop it will not show.
