I had one group of applications for Remote Controlling types of apps, xbmc, xbox, xtreamer etc. Suddenly it was just gone and the applications are no else to find either. If I launch store Jolla and search for the app it shows as installed and I can launch it from there. Later I found that the whole category had ended up inside another category, which I learned later shouldn't even be possible to do (I then tried manually to move a category inside another without success).

Still, this has obviously happened, and not only for me (see comments in my own first answer). So, this must be some bug because I haven't fiddled around in any way other than creating the category. I have no idea about how and when it happened either because I only noticed it when I needed one of them.

When this happens, and if one finds the place where the category has ended up it is possible to separate them again, in the same way as for moving an app out of a category. Still, this is a strangeness that should be addressed.

Today I found the lost category buried underneath another category. It must have been my own doing.

So, I humbly apologize for filing this report. It is not a bug and it is now all good. Unless anyone objects, please close or completely remove this question.

EDIT: It may not be wise to close this after all. Now realizing that having a category inside another should not be possible to achieve. And that was what had happened here. If it happens though, the category can be taken out again the usual way, just like an app under a category.

I have no idea when or how this happened, I was just surprised that I suddenly was missing the category when I needed an app from it.

Category inside category? How did you do it? In theory this option is imposible.

Tried to do that after seing your comment, and you're right, it refuses me to drop one category over another. And yet still, I swear that that was what had happened somehow. Well, I guess there's some obscure bug after all. So, I wonder how this happened, it must be some very special loophole I've found.

I had that happen once as well, no idea how it happened and I thought I was just seeing things. Maybe you could make this into a bug report (although I suppose you don't have any more ideas as to how this happened than me).

kimmoli: I don't know how to PM someone at TJC, but please read the three comments above here. Maybe this issue shouldn't be closed after all! It seems there IS a bug, but of a different nature.
