AIR mobile debug in landscape mode

I would like to debug an IOS iPad app in landscape mode - but I cannot find the setting. I tried "Emulator Apple iPad" but that the size is fixed to 768x1024 (portrait). When I add adl options "-screensize 1024x768:1024x768", I get an error message:

[AIR Debug Launcher]: -screensize already specified

[AIR Debug Launcher]:   adl -help

Any hint?

Thanks and Regards,

To set custom screen size please select 'Other...' in the Emulator combo box. Size fields will become editable.
Or you can use standard Apple iPad emulator and when it is launched - click Device on its main menu and select Rotate Left/Right.

Thanks - it works now. I can swear I tried before but the size fields were not editable - has this been fixed in 11.1.1 ?

I don't believe you ;) This functionality always worked.

The way I fixed this was to stop using the 'Generated' Application descriptor and start using the Custom template one. In the file, it mentions
<aspectRatio>landscape</aspectRatio> in the description of initial window.

Finally, when debugging, select App descriptor (emulator): to be 'as set for iOS'

Now it's always landscape, no need for custom other resolution.
