    Searching online it seems that I the setting should be under display but I don't see it on this Note Pro.

    It's annoying in Sketchbook because the app freezes for a second when I rotate my device.

    Not sure about on the tab but here's how you do it on the s5. Maybe its the same. (HTH!)
    Slide down the menu from the home screen and select the settings button (the cog looking thing in the top right corner)

    Another method to quickly adjust is to just use quick tiles.

    If you swipe down the notification panel using two fingers instead of one you get the full set of quick settings tiles. One of them is called "Screen Rotation" which is the icon visible as the 2nd from the right in the 1st screenshot drchimrichalds posted. This will toggle rotation lock, so set rotation how you want it and then disable rotation.

    I like to use this application though:


    It allows me to set specific rotations for specific applications. Very handy since some of my applications I prefer to force into a particular rotation.

    Thank you!

    The two finger trick worked.

    Screen rotation lock does not seem to be available in any other menu.

    Very confusing.
