  • @ Benjamin - Thanks for responding.

    I learned that the monitor doesn't officially support portrait mode but I tried rotating the orientation into portrait mode in an Apple store and it worked. (I didn't rotate the monitor itself, just the presentation.) So I went ahead and bought one and put it on a VESA mount and portrait mode has worked fine for several months now. In fact it's worked fine using two of these monitors in portrait mode. I'm using a 15" 2017 MBP. Not sure why it's not officially supported. Perhaps I'm risking something, but it's been great so far.
