Laucher folders are good enough in landscape, but the grid of folder icon styles is shrinking in width and not scrollable, showing only two middle rows.

To reproduce the bug:

  1. Open an app which supports landscape view, such as Messages or Gallery, and rotate the device to landscape;

  2. Swipe up from the bottom edge to open the launcher;

  3. Open an app folder;

  4. Tap on folder icon to select the icon style.

You will see a broken grid like this:

Does launcher rotate supported by default or it is a patch? If it's a patch you should address patch developer.

@kandelabra if you use an app in landscape mode and draw the app grid open from the bottom, it will be in landscape. But I can't confirm this bug, for me there's only the top bar with folder icon and title. I'll post a screenshot later.

Here: Landscape folder

@raketti, Yes, I see, thank you for the clarification.

I also can't reproduce it. But since I have patch with more folders icons I have four rows of icon and the last one hardly fits the screen, but screen can't be scrolled.

@raketti, @kandelabra, it's not the folder; as I said the folders are shown correctly. The bug is in folder icon style where you select the folder icon.

@Markkyboy, you're using another one too: launcher combined patch, aren't you?
