    Still don't know what you or the OP is asking for? Do you mean in split screen?

    no, I think this is the security feature where you can lock the buttons so kids don't mess around.
    you can unpin the screen by pressing and holding a combination of
    back & recent apps on the nav bar.
    since there is no nav bar when you enable gesture navigation...this option is not available.

    No it's under security in settings . It locks a app in the homescreen you can't exit out of it.

    ok so basically what u are saying is that u would like to have screen pining for navigation gestures? and not just the normal navigation bar? because if you're using normal navigation bar u can enable screen pinning in security & lock screen. if you're trying to use it with navigation gestures you can't because it's greyed out(disable).

    I would love an update that gives you the ability to pin the app while still using the navigation gestures.

    Sorry the Pin Screen option is available on OnePlus 8 pro but when overview is brought up there is no option to pin.

    UPDATE:. Ok so you tap the square icon at the bottom of the screen, and all the cards come up (the Overview screen). You need to find the app you want to pin and *press and hold* and an options menu pops up, from which you can pick Pin, Split Screen, etc.

    Hope that helps!

    (Note to OnePlus team: please update the information in the Pin Screen settings page. It's rather unclear. Thank you!)

    here's a screenshot of the 8 Pro settings screen for Pinning:. note the inaccurate instructions.
