Hi, will you be able to add an option to hide the folders name? I think it will be cool, because it takes really much space of the folder preview.
Thanks in advance

When editing an app from within a folder, some app names are randomly reappearing (I have them hidden). They go away after you close the folder, but still thought it was worth mentioning.

I can't change an icon manually... I am trying to use the red Gmail icon, PNG with transparency. Do I need a specific format?
Hope the video is OK...

Siru icon pack!

Can't get shutter to work. Using Android Lollipop (Huawei P8). As far as I remember i worked fine in 3.7.1 and/or 3.7.2. Is it possible to downgrade to an older version for a while? If so do I have to uninstall and reinstall the app. Will the backup from the newer version handle this? Thanks...

I have no idea how this happened, but i added an app on my 2nd homescreen then quickly removed it and the screen didnt disappear. Glitches are fun (new beta)

Sometimes when I open the App Drawer, for a blink of an eye all the icons are having a white box around them, then it disappears and icons return to their normal look.
P.s. can't take a screenshot cuz it happens completely random and fast.

I can confirm that this optimization happens every time AL quits and is restarted. Happens quite often to (doesn't really bug me, though), not just when I force close AL.

If it's intended to happen that often,thats fine, but if not, it may have something to do with staying in memory.

The shortcut for the recent apps/multitasking is not working anymore don't know if it's a beta or N related bug though

I had a look. This code has changed completely for N. I think I'll have to wait for N's public release and look at the code and see if I can get it working again.

+Chris Lacy​​​​ I very much like having the new Black option for Quicktheme. Unfortunately, it seems a bit buggy. When setting all options, except Status bar, to Black, it changes the Theme type to Custom, as it should.

I use Tapet to change my wallpaper hourly. In the past, I kept the Quicktheme type set to Wallpaper. This worked well, except for the occasion when AL3 could not match a wallpaper color. In which case, if would revert to default theme settings (white Quickbar, drawer background, etc.).

I would expect that when the theme type is set to Custom it should work independently of the wallpaper and keep my custom settings, regardless of wallpaper color. It does not. I still occasionally see the toast message stating AL3 can not match wallpaper colors. In which case it reverts to the white Quickbar, etc. Once the wallpaper changes to one that AL3 feels it can match colors with, everything then reverts back to my Black settings, rather than actually using the wallpaper colors as would be the case if the theme type were set to Wallpaper.

So, it would seem some of the Wallpaper functionality is still active, even when set to Custom. 

Is this in fact intentional, or a bug in Quicktheme?

There is a large chance I am just missing something, however, I cannot delete a page off the home screen nor an app on the home screen. Can someone help me out?

I did that on accident with a zooper widget but couldn't replicate it again.

For me, this happens when any of the icon labels are enabled. If I disable all labels, the drawer is populated, otherwise it is empty. Galaxy s4 on Android 5.0.1

Here are the rings that briefly appear around the icons in my homescreen then disappear. Is this a bug or part of some new feature?

On all new betas if you disable dock, screen indicators and quick bar your icons all become unresizable.

Can you clarify what you mean by "unresizable"?

I have an interesting bug that simply made me unable to remove an app from the home screen. It would work normally as it should when the search bar was present. When I removed the search bar, it removed the options to uninstall/edit/remove up at the top. Nexus 6p, Android N.

It's a known issue. The old long press and flick to the top of the screen trick still works from the Jelly Bean days.

Hi, I would love to see the placeholders that appear when you open a cover from the dock to be slightly colored in the color of the cover's icon, like seen below in the video.

I did this myself by placing a colored dot on the wallpaper below, but a native solution would be appreciated!

Update: I added an All Apps shortcut to my desktop and after opening it, the quick drawer which was empty before is populated with apps.
