          • Widgets have different font and are huge comparing to the default launcher.The widget preview is normal, but when added change font and size

            Widgets have different font and are huge comparing to the default launcher. The widget preview is normal, but when added, it changes font and size and it is very unpleasant to the eye. I can provide screenshot. My device is galaxy s9+.

                      • Restore backup fails, will not restore home screen.

                        After restore of backup the home screen is empty, no widget and icons but dock is restored well. Had to reinstall launcher and do all configuration from start to get all in place like before.

                                      • 'Microsoft Launcher has stopped!'

                                        After getting updated, Microsoft Launcher has stopped several times while closing any application. I might have been facing the problem since new feature, Cartona, was added; and I suppose the launcher takes more memory (RAM) than before. Most of the MS Launcher's users use custom ROM because of their obsolete phone; and as they have low ram, your team should design the launcher so preciously that users could be able get best performance with low memory. However, it must be the best launcher on the internet otherwise.
