Description Porygon 2019-03-12 20:12:16 UTC
If screen scale was set using gnome settings menu, setting orientation with xrandr seems to overwrite this although it does not overwrite resolution settings. It also does not overwrite if scale is set using xrandr.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL-8.0.0-20190228.1 (RC-1.0)

Steps to Reproduce: 

 1. open Settings -> Devices -> Display in gnome-shell
 2. set scale to 200% on primary monitor
 3. open a terminal
 4. execute xrandr -o right

Actual results: 
 1. screen rotates, scale is reset

Expected results:

 1. screen rotates without affecting scale or resolution
