  1. LG themes don't work well, most app icons remain the same as original LG theme no matter how many times you apply a new theme pack

    Icons from most LG themes fail to change no matter how many times you apply the theme. Works fine on LGs Home Launcher but not with MS Launcher. Love everything else about the launcher

    • hidden apps

      When using the transparent theme with 0% opacity and a totally black wallpaper, selecting hidden apps will not trigger any visual feedback, which makes selecting the appropriate apps difficult.

      • Can only recognize one icon pack only.

        The launcher only recognizes one icon pack. I just bought one and it won't recognize that icon pack when I try to change an icon individually. But it does recognize a free one.

        • Why doesn't "blur effect", affect the background of cards, if pinned solely to other pages?

          Why doesn't "blur effect", affect the background of cards, if pinned solely to other pages? For example if I pin the "Frequent apps" card to a new page, and I've already applied "blur effect", it does not apply to it's background. Fix that plz Microsoft!
          Thanks

                      Colors for selection marker in wallpaper settings and for the widget button on the feed are booth blueish and not really readable / looking right with the transparent theme.

                                  The new white background in Glance (in light mode) is not always great. We should be able to choose to go back to seeing the background image with full colours while being in light mode.

                                  • The opacity option in the transparent theme can not be increased beyond the third setting (i.e. it gets stuck at the third position)

                                    In themes, the opacity option for transparent theme is buggy..... you can decrease opacity, but you can't increase it beyond third setting

                                      • The opacity slider on the "transparent" theme doesn't work

                                        After moving the opacity slider in the transparent theme and exciting the theme panel, the opacity stays at the default, and when the panel is selected again the slider is back in the middle.

                                        • Custom accent colors

                                          A color picker to select a custom accent color would be cool
