      • Can't edit Home screen icons or remove apps anymore. Tapping and holding an icon does nothing on my pixel 2 xl.

        Since a few updates ago I'm stuck with my home screen. Can't edit it anymore. Can't edit or move apps around, create folders, etc.

          • Icon Packs

            Launcher not allowing me to change icon packs. Even when one is selected, it automatically goes back to the system default icons. I can change the icons outside of the launcher by disabling it, but one I enable the launcher it defaults to system again.

                  • Can't move the apps around for your convenience like with all other mobile software. Unfortunately you just need to be happy with a - Z ordr

                    Unable to arrange apps in a custom order... Even when placing them in different folders.... The order stays alphabetical in nature

                    • The custom gallery wallpaper will not stay applied. Every night at 10pm it changes back to the Bing pictures. Please fix

                      The custom gallery backgrounds for the home screen and lock screen will not stay "On". Every morning I turn on the custom gallery setting and hand select pictures from my phone to use and every night between 10pm and 11pm it turns off and auto apply the Bing rotating images. Please fix promptly. Thank you

                        • There's a bug that causes the launcher to randomly disallow folders, and the apps within the 2 be customized with icons from the edit menu.

                          creating custom icons for folders randomly leads to the inability to customize folders or the apps within them after about 10 icon selections.

                                        PT-BR* O aplicativo não move ícones na tela inicial, dificultando a personalização; o aplicativo não bloqueia a tela imediatamente quando clico duas vezes para bloquear o celular (na configuração de gestos); não consigo adicionar widgets na tela inicial. //
                                        EN-USA* The application does not move icons on the home screen, making customization difficult; the application does not lock the screen immediately when I double-click to lock the phone (in the gesture configuration); I can not add widgets on the home screen.

                                        • Icons not changing, despite being compatible.

                                          Can't change icons despite being compatible, only launcher default works.
