                              • Transparency bug: whenever I open the app menu, the transparency settings of the page on the left get all messy, wallpaper gets darker

                                The transparency settings of the left page get all messy whenever I open the app menu. wallpaper gets darker and so do the launcher widgets. the only way to get it back to normal is to open the app drawer then the search function and the transparency gets back to how I set it. before the last update the same problem happened whenever I opened an app from the drawer. after this update the app drawer problem is fixed but the same thing happens with the menu as described.

                                      • Icons are not the same size in the whole launcher.

                                        I'm using at the same time the default Android icon pack and Pixelful Icon Pack, both with rounded icons. The size of the circles isn't the same between the two, so I would like icons to be uniformed at the same size, just like Nova Launcher does.

                                        • calendar icon is not customizable

                                          Whenever I change icon packs, except the calendar apps, everything else changes. This is quite frustrating as I would like to see the icons in my preferred icon packs.
