Incorrect CleanType Fonts after rotate.



I have found, that ClearType fonts after rotate screen by 180 degrees are incorrect (colored).

This is why pixels in normal screen position (open keyboard and screen is vertical) are RGB (red, green, blue from left to right).

After rotate screen by 180 degrees (closed keyboard and screen is horizontal) the pixels order is BGR.

ClearType enhacenments is depend on pixels order. But HP dont tell anything after screen rotation.

Warning! You can damage you eyes.


I have found a bad solution in TuneUp uitilities to manually change pixels order after each time screen rotate.


Tested on Windows Vista and Windows 7 with last screen drivers.


I have found a simple executable to change CleanType Fonts pixels orders at 

How to automate it? 


Are there any good solutions?

Re: Incorrect CleanType Fonts after rotate.

After an hour googling I found THE BEST solution. This is "Tablet helper". 

TabletType adjusts ClearType settings based on the screen orientation: 
Primary landscape - normal ClearType 
Primary portrait - Standard (non-ClearType) 
Secondary landscape - inverted ClearType 
Secondary portrait - same as primary portrait 


This is working!
