    Hi there,

    With the recent launcher update, I am no longer able to long press the up arrow just above the dock to quickly search for apps. This was a very useful feature to quickly jump to search option with less clicks.

    Can anyone from OnePlus confirm the same?

    It would be great if this is brought back. With many apps installed, search is the easiest way to open apps and this gesture made it easier before.

    Thanks,
    Chaks

    Same here. But it doesn't bother me since most of my most used apps are on my home screen.

    I uninstalled and updated the launcher.

    It worked for the first time but as soon as applied a different icon pack, this fails to work.

    Folks saying it is working for you, can you apply a different icon pack and check if you are still able long press the up arrow and jump to search apps quickly?

    Thanks!

    How do I add folks from OnePlus?

    I have repro-ed this several times now. Works if I uninstall and install the update. As soon as I apply a different icon pack, I am unable to use the quick search feature.

    Yea, doesn't work (i am not using a custom icon pack)... But they added frequently used app without an option to disable that :(

    Also, offtopic (again) but related to launcher.
    Why they don't add an option for pixel folder style?

    I have found the option. it's in the settings of the launcher. This option used to be in the 3.dot in the right when we do the up gesture and at the up right.

    2 year old thread... im sure they have either forgotten about it or found the solution some time ago...
