    Hello, I have a small issue for quite some time now. It's just a bit annoying but I finally noted it one day and now have time to post it.
    My usecase of autoinput is as follows: It plays back music in spotify app while I'm driving in my car.
    The smartphone is in a holder, it has its audio out on the top side, so it is placed upside down in the holder.
    Configuring the input I initially held the smartphone also upside down, else it didn't work.
    So most time, when I'm driving in my car everythings fine but if I drive in another car an just place the phone on the passenger seat the orientation is normal/default and not upside down so the input does not work as wanted. It happens upside down.
    So, could autoinput get the orientation info first, to work in every orientation mode portrait, reverse portrait, landscape and reverse landscape mode?
    I don't know if this was undertandable...
    Right now I use input method root and and input device is: synaptics-rmi
    Ohter input devices to choose are:
    • msm8974-taiko-mtp-snd-card Headset Jack
    • msm8974-taiko-mtp-snd-card Button Jack
    • synaptics-rmi-kpd
    • qpnp_pon
    • tri-state-key
    • gpio-keys

    I think I tried all these other input devices before and none worked.

    How exactly are you tapping the screen with AutoInput? Are you using the AutoInput root action right now?

    Did you give the "AutoInput Action" method a try? That is rotation independent if you use element IDs or Texts :)

    I will try..I remember that one of the others didn't work..not sure which one.
    Is this the one where i need more single tasks with every input step?

    Ok, it didn't work :( where i want autoinput to select all my songs, i only get field profile and this way no input happens. If i choose the x,y coordinates it selects my spotify user profile..

    What if you use some text on the screen directly without using easy setup?

    Thank you very much, now it works irrespective of screen orientation.
    I thought if it's not chooseable in easy setup I'm out of luck.

    On screen text is always a good option if possible :) Glad it works now!!
