  1. Can't scroll through hidden apps after 5.3 update

    After the most recent update I can't scroll through the hidden apps (accessible from double swiping up the dock pill) anymore. Restarting the launcher didn't do the trick

  5. Hidden apps issue

    Hidden app screen is being compressed if you use more than 3 column format. They are all in the middle, they overlay each other and is quite annoying when you missclick one app.

  14. hidden apps are spaced differently than the rest my homescreen

    It appears the icons in the hidden apps drawer are missing padding or something as they are much closer together than apps in all other folders. they are also forced into 3 columns when other folders have more.
