    • keyboard stays / disappears

      whenever I have Microsoft launcher as my active launcher this happens. any other launcher and the issue is not there. Frequently my keyboard fails to close and stays overlayed on an app and I have to remove it manually. Other times the keyboard fails to appear when I enter an input field. I have to multitask in and out of the app to get the keyboard to appear.

      you do not have a category that fits this problem. I have chosen dock but it should be keyboard or input.

            • dock

              when the dock is not visible, i.e. when it is 'not enabled' (when you have to swipe up to access it), the line which provides the user with a point to grab is positioned almost behind the dots that indicate which horizontal page the user is on. This overlap does not occur when the dock is set to enabled.

              A further and only recently pressing issue to resolve this is that since Android Pie, users can now swipe up from the 'pill' to access open apps. This means that two 'swipe up' gestures are now positioned incredibly close to each…

                  • slow opening of apps on dock

                    Opening apps from the dock became slow. It adds a significant delay before starting the apps everytime as if they are always deleted from the memory. Starting from the app drawer is fast.

                                    Dock freezes and launcher becomes unresponsive. I can only access Settings. To solve the issue, I need to disable Dock and enable again or force a Launcher's reboot.

                                      • Unable to change Icon for Folders in the dock

                                        Using the new folder options for the dock and I can not change the icon for folders in the dock. They seem to apply but then nothing has changed in my home screen. Folders on the desktop are fine but not in the dock.

                                        • Dock, lots of "accidentally" activating utter left and richt icons (S8). Dock needs additonal border (option) to prevent.

                                          Samsung S9. Find myself accidentally hitting the richt/left docking icon's when just holding the phone.
                                          Imho this could be prevented by introducing a non-active border area on the left and right side of the Dock.

                                          As a work around I currently have 5x2 icons, leaving 4 left/right positions emoty.
