Description mina.fci2015 2017-09-14 13:34:55 UTC
Created attachment 24747 [details]
file contains issue figures

we created a xamarin forms project including alot of XAML pages in English version,
we need to add Arabic version, so we tried not to duplicate all XAML pages and code for Arabic version (duplicated work and effort),
so we tried to use RotationY property to flip page (RTL) when language is set to Arabic (settings in login page).
For instance, we have a content page includes grid with three columns (image,label,label)
when we use RotationY = 180 property of the content page only, the label text is viewed rotated fine (not blurred) as "figure 1".
and also when we use RotationY = 180 property of the label only, the label text is viewed rotated fine (not blurred) as "figure 2".
but when we use RotationY = 180 property of the content page, and use RotationY = 180 property of the label, 
the label text is rotated blurred (pixelated) as "figure 3" .
the issue is not happening on android emulator and real device, but it occurs on iOS simulator and real device (iphone).

Proper RTL support is on our public roadmap.

@Paul DiPietro [MSFT] 
it's ok 
but until RTL is supported is there any workaround for rotationy problem knowing that it only appears in ios??
