I am an illustrator Using Creative Cloud and a Wacom 22hd touch Cintiq with 2 other 27 inch monitors in addition. I mostly use Photoshop for my illustration work. I recently decided to rotate my Cintiq 180 degrees (which would be sideways) and draw an 11 x 17 image. I had to place the Photoshop application on one of my other monitors so that the interface and menus would stay uprighted, and moved just my image to the Cintiq to draw on. It would be really nice if Adobe would implement a feature where the program uprights itself automatically in situations where we rotate monitors 180 degrees. That way we could keep the app on the same monitor. Would this be possible?

You could rotate the whole OS if you work in portrait most of the time or rotate the canvas in PS.

Actually I work in landscape the majority of the time but it would be an nice option to have the program upright automatically if I choose to draw certain things in portrait and have the menus on the same monitor.. Not sure if that is possible.

The device would have to support it with an accelerometer, or something similar, and interface with the OS. Windows 8 supports it - so it's more of Wacom hardware issue. http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/window...
