Bug Description

bq M10 rc-proposed r219

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open an app
2. Put it in the side stage
3. Rotate the tablet to portrait
At this point you should see the app which was in the side stage on the whole screen
4. Rotate the tablet back to landscape

Expected result:
The app is visible in the side stage

What happens instead:
The side stage is closed but the app still has focus as its name is visible in the top bar (screenshot attached)

Thanks for the quick fix! I've installed silo #2177 with this and other bug fixes. I have one question regarding this issue though. When using silo #2177, I noticed the app is visible in the side stage after rotation only if that app is focused. But if an app is in the side stage and the main app is focused, after rotating to portrait and back to landscape, the side stage is hidden. I'm not sure if that's by design or not?

I think this is slightly subjective, i.e. one person might expect one, another something else.

I myself agree that the sidestage should be persistent through rotations, until you actively move it away.

Can you file a new bug against unity8 and ubuntu-ux? Thanks!

I agree, it is a bit subjective. I spoke with @mzanetti yesterday and we both have the same opinion as you. Reported bug #1641072
