      • Widgets disappear after launcher update

        After launcher update (and probably restart) all widgets disappear. I'm seeing pop-up with the text like "there is no more space on this homescreen". I can make all widgets to appear again by adding/removing any random widget to any screen.

                  • I can't add the Google Keep widget to any window. even empty ones.

                    I can't add the Google Keep widget to any of my windows. Always when I try to add it, even to empty windows, it says that there is no space.

                    • Launcher hang then crash

                      I updated to the latest Launcher, then swiped right to the family card. The UI became unresponsive and eventually Launcher restarted. Also, we should add a feedback category for Parent Card.

                          • Choosing a picture for a galery widdget couses Phone to crash fatalny, quits Microsoft Launcher entirely saying that system was recovered

                            After choosing a picture for a galery widget nothing shows up, rather than that phone crashes completly back to default launcher (quiting Microsoft Launcher) with notification that system was recovered after a fatal error had occured. Futher switching Microsoft Launcher on kept on quiting just as before with the same warning message.

                                    The size of widgets added to the "feed" page appears to reset to default size everytime the phone / launcher is restarted. i.e. the custom size gets forgotten.

                                      • eMail widget does not work

                                        The widget for the "E-Mail" App in EMUI (Huawei) does not work. I am not sure whether it is the Google standard or a specific one for Huawei. I use there my Corporative account. Maybe the issue is related to security policies. When I try to add that widget I get a warning like "it is not possible to show it". It works properly with the original launcher.

                                        • Unable to add widget on the home screen. it's the widget provided by the EMUI OS

                                          When I do a long press on homescreen, I'm getting option to add widgets, but when I choose the widget provided by OS, it's disappearing after I add it.
