Is it possible to turn off the screen without adding an turn off screen app? Perhaps dubbeltap on the screen in gestures to turn off?
Is it just me or are the widgets missing in the app drawer? They used to be there, right? I only have apps there, no widgets. CM12 nightly on Samsung Galaxy S5. Any hint appreciated.

It's not 100% understandable.

What's your original language?

Last update (few minutes ago) reduses very much ability to resize / oversize icons on home screen.Since last update it worked with 9x5 grid oversized up to 140%...maybe more, and now it is only 110% max.

#materinova24 running great. One slight annoyance, I have 3 dock pages. Whenever I leave the home screen and return my dock is always back to the middle dock page. It used to stay on the last current dock page that I was on. Am I overlooking a remember dock position setting? Or is this be design? If it's by design, please allow us to change this behavior so we don't have to perform extra swipes.

For me, it appears that after this update my Note 4 on 5.0.1 lost the left soft key and the multi window and my S-Pen menu. I have not installed anything before or after this latest update.  I have cleared cache, restarted, etc.

Just finish setting up my home screen. I had to restore my beloved Nexus 5, and this is the result.

+Kevin Barry, beta .24 is great! Would it be possible to add the option for haptic feedback on long presses? Would you also consider adding the option for a dark material theme? Oh also, would you consider adding the ability to change the color of the theme on the desktop when icons are pressed or when a screen reaches the end of scrolling the desktop screens, could we have the option to edit the colors of the shading like it was in the 3.3 stable release? Thanks so much for the great updates.

I like the new 2-line labels. It fixed an unfortunately funny label truncation for one of the tools I use.

On setting the homescreen grid to 7 (rows) X 5(columns), the icon size available is reduced to 114 % max. I have already disabled labels, it says that I should reduce the grid. This issue has appeared in beta 24.

Why the background of App Drawer doesn't look WHITE when background chosen color is white?
I've reported the matter fee times earlier also.

Is it a glitch that i can only scale my home icons to 89% with the new update? But my dock icons scaled to 130% come out especially blurred? Everything else seemed to be improved from first version though.

Same with me here!
Before The update today my home icons were much bigger. Now i cant increase The size anymore.
The Text says i should increase The numbers oft rows or cols.
But thats no Option!

I don't know if it is intentional but using the new double line for text labels makes all labels use two lines even if it doesn't need it. Here is an example folder with all short names:
