Hello everyone,

I know there is this new menu availible and many are talking about the quick toggles availiable but: is there an option for quick lock? What I mean is, in SF 1 a swipe from top closed an app or locked the device. This into SF 3 would mean an edge swipe would close / lock the device depending on where you are but on SF 2 the quick close is missing. Still prefer SF1 UI but on my Xperia X I can't use it so I use patchmanager for getting a) switches and b) quick close. So if the answer is "no, quick lock doesn't exist" (which is one of my favourite gestures) then the obvious question is: is there a patch for getting it back.

Devil's advocate: what's wrong with the power button?

patchmanager > web catalog > topmenu control (by ancelad) - includes swipe-to-lock patch by egenio (not sure if this patch still works...

what is a power button? ;) to be honest i never use it since j1, except switch on/off :) a gesture is way faster. thanks for the link.

On my Jolla1 I can "double push" the power button to lock the phone, don't know about Xperia X though. A gesture is definitely not way faster than that.

this would mean you have easy access to a button, yes true for j1 but nothing is faster than a single swipe down on my j1 with sf v1

Swipe down from top, touch the lock icon?

There's no lock icon in my case.

there is only a button with a patch and swipe + touch are two gestures but answer is given above.

@NuklearFart I see the lock icon without a patch installed.

Oh, sorry to confuse anyone. There definitely is a lock button in the top menu!

How can I strike-through text?

@Pohli: <del>strikethrough</del> is how you strike through text
