    • Changing individual app icon does not show all available icon packs.

      When trying to change an individual app icon, choosing from different available icons (from the same pack), not all of the icon packs are available to choose from.

          • shortcut

            launcher is not applying icon pack on home screen shortcut,
            like (XYZ) app's default icon in ($).
            in my icon pack (XYZ's) icon is (&)
            it shows (&) icon on app drawer, but when i'm creating shortcut it shows old ($) icon.

              • On large displays the icons size is not well configurable

                On large displays you need to setup more rows and columns but Microsoft Launcher overly decreases the icons size and the most of display becomes empty

                  • Blurry app icons

                    Using a Pixel 3, app icons within folders are blurry looking. Only in folders. Outside of folder they all appear fine but icons within a folder have blurriness around the edge of the icon and just aren't as clear.

                    • The icons do not space out in landscape mode.

                      the icons do not line up correctly on landscape mode. previous version works better.

                                • Icons disappear from home screen when dragging.

                                  This has occurred doing single icons as well as multiple. When releasing them an animation occurs similar to putting them in a folder, however they vanish. This has also happened with existing folders (them disappearing)

                                        • With a home screen of 5 columns it won't let me select Medium or Large as the icon size.

                                          When the home screen is set to five columns the medium and large icon size buttons are disabled. They are enabled for 6 and 7 columns though.
