  4. App icons randomly rearrange and disappear

    Apps randomly removed from folders in app drawer and randomly disappear from home screen. I have all of my apps sorted into folders and the icon positions locked at all times but somehow apps will randomly be out of their folders and some of the home screen icons will disappear and have to be re-added. I cannot find a cause to explain it.

  6. Wrong color of item names in folders

    So far, item descriptions/names change their colors to black/white, depending on background image (black font color for bright background image and vice versa). This does not apply for items located in folders. It seems they are always black.

  13. Moving Apps in Folders

    Picking an app up in a folder causes the other apps in the folder to reorder and fill the space where the app was, making that app disappear from the folder when dropping the app.

  16. folder

    For folders in the dock, when setting swipe to open or a swipe action, it doesn't do anything. This however works correctly for folders on the home screen. So if you set swipe to open folder, there's no way to open the folder on the dock.

  19. Re-ordering apps in folder is very finicky

    Dragging apps in folders is very finicky with the first attempt usually repositioning the folder window itself. The app will then be difficult to position as in the other icons don't move to give it a spot and when they do the dragged up just snaps back to where it was.

  20. 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…
