              • Can't view Whicons icon pack

                I can't view the Whicons icon pack because they are white on a transparent background. MS launcher provides only a white background to view

                      • Widget font size

                        Basically all widgets are being displayed with far bigger fonts than necessary/expected. Fonts on app icon are very small and the widgets are all huge due to the font being twice the size of the apps. This looks bad and seems to waste a lot of screen space.

                        • lost widgets

                          All widgets randomly lost after a reboot. Won't restore from backup. This is the second time in a week. Relatively new user... will have to abandon launcher if not resolved. Takes way too much time to set up the widget set I use.

                          • Icon size changer does not affect drawer and dock icons, just desktop icons. In earlier versions this setting was changing all icons size.

                            Hi, windows dev's! My issue is: Icon size changer does not affect drawer and dock icons, just desktop icons. In earlier versions this setting was changing all icons size. I hope you will fix that issue, thank you in advance!
