Maybe a noob question, but is there a layer that change the navbar height to 0, that is, to hide it.
I know one can always hide navbar by editing the build.prop file, but in Marshmallow, adding that line in build.prop seems to disable the "google now on tap" and it wont be triggered by simulated long-press-home with LMT launcher.
So instead of making the system think your device has physical keys, I have to make the navbar "invisible" but exist. I tried to decompile the framework-res.apk and modify the dimens.xml myself. All works good, navbar hidden and google now on tap working, but I see some stuttered animation of the pop-out menu list.

Excuse me for my noob question, but what's the difference between the "keep screen on" option in global settings and the "Timeout" option in FP settings ?

I'm only using the FP on the lockscreen and I set the first to 15, the second 30. When a notification comes, the screen wakes up and turns off 15s later, no mater whether I tap on the notification or not. I would expect it to stay on 15s if I leave it untouched and 30s if I tap on the notification and check it. But It does not seem to be working in the way I expect.

Also, I notice that when there is no notification and I turn on the screen manually, it will stay on for 1min, which is the timeout I set for display. Is it possible to make it behave just like the stock lockscreen (off in 10s)?

Oh, I forgot to mention I am using that screen-off app.  
Also thanks a lot to the dev. for this great app. Best of this kind in my opinion.

Sharing what’s up our sleeve: Android coming to wearables

Today we’re excited to extend Android to wearables. And we’re starting with the most familiar wearable—watches. We’re already working with several consumer electronics manufacturers, including Asus, HTC, LG, Motorola and Samsung; chip makers Broadcom, Imagination, Intel, Mediatek and Qualcomm; and fashion brands like the Fossil Group to bring you watches powered by Android Wear later this year. If you’re a developer, check out to download a Developer Preview so you can tailor your existing app notifications for watches powered by Android Wear. Look out for more developer resources and APIs coming soon.
