    That doesn't happen for me while using ultimate rotation control, it is still working flawlessly for me. You obviously have something set differently than I do which is proven by the fact that the little symbol in the upper left hand corner of your screen does not look the same as mine.
    That's because it's not Ultimate it's Adaptive app I'm using in the example above, however it occurs on both apps.

    Also worth noting that screenshot is NOT my homescreen. The homescreen rotates fine. That screen is the app drawer.

    Check your app drawer and rotate, see what happens.

    Now tap 'apps' to open your app drawer and see what happens in landscape.

    Open your apps folder and rotate to landscape. Cut off row of icons?

    I think I see what is happening here. Your dock is on the right but those of use who have the icons cut off do not have the dock on screen. I believe the difference is landscape and forced landscap setting. Maybe, maybe not. Im not gonna test it as ive got my launcher set up just the way i like it.

    I think the main problem is people are confusing homescreen with the apps folder / drawer. Homescreen works fine it's the app drawer that cuts off a row of icons.

    You can fix that by putting you're app's into list mode.

    I just downloaded Ultimate Rotation and it does cut off the 5th row on my Note II. PittiesRule, maybe you have an older version of Ultimate Rotation that works? I have tried all sort of settings and doesn't matter how I set it, it still cut off the 5th row. Why does it have a 5th row when Portrait mode only has 4?

    Install Nova over TouchWiz and the problem will go away.

    No Problem but just for you to know, with Nova if you don't make any changes you will hardly notice the difference. I don't do messaging and have heard some people have had some issues there and then there is the Buddy Screen but there are ASFIK work arounds for those.

    Hey try the different modes of landscape. I believe one is forced auto, auto lanscape and landscape. Do any these make it so the icons arent cut off?

    I've got the fifth row cut off, too. Note the icon on the upper left -- mine also has an "F", which means its in forced landscape. I've tried every other global rotation setting and the fifth row is always cut off.

    Same for me. Im not sure why it does for some and not others. I just went with apex launcher and havent had any problems. Spen still works just fine, only difference from what I can tell is page buddy no longer pops up. Also when it rotates the icons resize and nothing gets cut off.

    What's odd is that the people who don't have a problem have 5 columns and 4 rows, so there is no fifth row to cut off. I have 4 columns and 5 rows, which is of course what you have when you're in portrait mode. So there is something on my Note 2 forcing or keeping this portrait-mode arrangement of icons when I rotate the phone into landscape mode. The other Note 2s are letting Ultimate Rotation re-arrange the icons into the 5 column/4 row configuration. Unless there really is some switch in Ultimate's settings that they've hit and I haven't, the only difference would be carrier-based. I can't imagine a carrier exerting control to that degree, but who knows.

    Good find man. I hadnt even thought of counting the rows from others pictures. Yep it must be setting thats not allowing the rearrangement of apps.

    That makes me wonder, the people who are having issues with Ultimate Rotation, what carrier are you with?
