    • App drawer

      When I set (in gestures settings) to do nothing when the dock is swiped up, the small icon above it is hidden. But when I swipe down to go to all apps and immediately going back to the home screen, the icon above the dock apps wrongly comes back.

                            • Dock app icon touch issue

                              whenever I open dock bar swipe up that accidentally clicks app icons.
                              one would expect any click only after complete opening of the dock swipe.
                              Thank you :)

                                    I have my dock set to only expand via a two finger swipe up however I regularly see a little line above my dock and when it appears it only takes one finger to expand the dock. I've used Nova launcher for 8 years and I love your launcher and would like to see it dialed in to perfection. Thanks.

                                      I have the dock bottom row set to apps and assumed it will let me have a third row of apps in the dock but this is not the case. i try to add more apps to the third row in the dock but they are rejected.

                                      currently have two rows of apps in the dock - one on display, one hidden with a swipe up.
