  1. folder icons dissapear

    after the latest update my folder icons (I pick an icon for a folder instead of the standard summary of the content) dissapeared. I put them back again but after a restart the were gone again. I redid the whole process, and a couple of hours later they were gone again.

  2. Icon on folder doesn't remain

    I have folders set to open the first app. After today's update the icon has returned to the icon represented by all the icons in that folder. I manually set them back to the specific program, but launcher has just reset them back.

  5. 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.

  7. Folder icons breaking

    Folder icons that have been set to a specific icon/set are breaking resulting in blank squares in the color the selected icon had. Only folders but all of them are affected. Single app icons are fine. This was previously breaking but instead was reverting to the default folder icon. Not sure of the cause.

  10. Two of my four folders on my home screen don't show mini icons anymore

    Two of my folders on my primary home screen lost the mini icons. The apps are not lost, they show up properly when expanded. Two other folders are fine.

  16. apps removed from folder

    Apps are being removed from folders periodically. I believe it may occur when the apps are updated.

  17. Folder

    The folder name on the homescreen is sometimes set back to standard folder name (=Unbenannter Ordner). If this happens, the app icons on the folder icon won't refresh anymore. They won't refresh even when I add a fourth app to a folder. There still remain only three icons on the folder icon. They won't refresh if I change the sorting of the apps or even if I delete some apps in the folder.
