  2. the background on the folders remains white even after I change its theme

    After setting my systems theme to dark mode and back, the folders automatically appear white all the time now. I tried going into the launcher settings to change it, but even after changing the theme it remains with a white background

  4. Folder custom icons keep getting removed in this update.

    I had custom icons for all my folders. This update reset the folder icon to the default app view. If I change the icon it reverts shortly after.

  8. Icon stuck outside of dock grid and cannot be removed

    With v 4.4 launcher I created a folder in the dock with 2 apps. Then I tried to remove one of the apps and put it in the 2nd row of the dock. The icon got stuck between the two rows with enlarged size and the only way to fix it was to restart launcher or reboot.

  13. Icon folder spacing

    Icon folder spacing is a bit too much. Extra space could be used to show more or larger icons of apps contained.

  14. Black text lost in folders

    When the background is white, the widgets change to light and text changes to black, which is a nice touch. However, opened app folders (and the dock for that matter) keep their dark background, meaning the black text gets lost.

  15. folder keeping sort issues

    after newly installing and setting up my home screen, I noticed my imported Games folder with 40 or more apps inside didn't hold the sorted order of the apps... and I found it very touchy (especially on the top row) to move them back into place, but it was doable.

    then after adjusting the dock settings (show names), it seemed all folders changed in 2 ways... (1) the rows/columns appeared reduced and/or the icon size increased and (2) it became impossible to order the apps inside the folder.

    no matter how many times I tried to move the location of…

  18. on S10 adding apps to a folder is very hard as the done button is in the top right corner which is partially blocked by the selfie camera.

    on S10 adding apps to a folder is very hard as the done button is in the top right corner of the screen, this is a problem as my phone has the cutout camera placed in that corner so it is difficult to press the done button.

  20. Cannot rearrange icons inside the folders.

    Rearranging icons in the folder is a hit and miss. most of the time when i drop the icon it sends me to the homescreen without moving it in the folder.

    Have multiple apps in a folder
    they are arranged, A, B, C
    i want to move A to C's position
    i long press A, move it to C, C moves away (animation) i drop A. it sends me back to home screen and nothing has been moved in the folder.
