  1. Tasks have all disappeared from the task widget

    Updated to the beta of 5.1, and my task list is now empty. As I only started using the list in 5.0, I don't know where it was saving the tasks to, so I don't know where to look to see if they have been deleted or are just no longer picked up by the widget.

    • Widgets disappear from home screen

      Widgets dissappear after random events (lick/unlock; going home from an app; going to settings...).
      I need to add the same widget once, than remove it, than add it once again and all the widgets reappear. This was an issue in the past. I reported it. It got fixed. Now it's happening again. It doesn't matter if I lock the home screen or not.

              • After reboot and updates a bunch of my widgets don't display. If I go add one of the widgets to another page then they all magically show up

                Every time I reboot or install an update a bunch of the widgets I have don't show up. If I add one of them to another page then they all magically appear and are loaded properly. It's not every widget, but it's always the same group of widgets.

                                      • Widget's font

                                        Widgets use launcher's build in segoe.ttf font but when launcher refresh itshelf the font reverts to stock. By resizing widget, segoe font reapplies.

                                        • Duplicate tasks

                                          The tasks widget on the Glance page shows duplicate entries for every to-do list. Removing and re-adding accounts doesn't fix the issue.
