    Scroll animation speed not updating

    James Waters · 1 · Last reply by James Waters

    I have an image that is animated to scroll with the background. When the phone is put in landscape mode, I want it to scroll at a different speed.

    I am using a formula to do this: $100 - si(land) * 90$. In previous setups this has worked perfectly, but for some reason in my newest project, this doesn't work.

    Going from portrait to landscape the scrolling speed stays the same, until I go into KLWP itself, go to the formula in question, open it and confirm it, then save. Only then does the scrolling speed change. The same problem

    Galaxy S9 and landscape orientation problem

    Marcin Mally · 6 · Last reply by Daniel Hajduch

    Hi, I've switched to S9 and it doesn't allow wallpaper rotation...

    It allows desktop orientation change but not wallpaper. Problem is that KLWP presets do not rotate (no live wallpaper does), but touch points related to KLWP elements in the preset seem to react to rotation (they change position).

    In portrait everything works fine (default and for now only avalaible wallpaper orientation for S9), element touched reacts as configured. But when desktop orientation is set to auto rotate, after switching to landscape, the visible location of the elements is different from the touch points related to them. At first I

    Problems with displaying calendar events

    After the update last night the calendar will randomly stop showing events and only show "--" for a while. If I open KWGT to edit my widget it corrects itself and shows my events again.

    Album art no longer displays when using Amazon Music.

    Chromatic Labyrinth · 2 · Last reply by Kestuhh

    I installed KWGT to replace Amazon Music's amazingly ugly widget. When I first installed KWGT, there was no problem. The album art showed up when I used Amazon Music and everything was working fine, so I purchased the pro version and a bunch of widget packs. However, a couple of days after installing, the album art no longer shows up when using Amazon Music. It still shows up with Google Music... but I have zero desire to change the music player I use and it was working fine with Amazon Music when first installed. I wouldn't find this so mysterious (or

    Clipping problem in overlap groups

    Quin Smith · 1 · Last reply by Ken Knechtel

    If you set a shape mask to a clip, that is inside an overlap group the padding under position does not work correctly anymore.

    For example if you make a square anchored in the center and give it 50 padding from all directions than the square stays in the perfect center as it should, but if you than make it into a clipping mask it moves to the top left corner of the area designated by the padding (refer to attached screenshots).

    Rotation Bug when set to clipping mask

    Legsleg · 0 · Posted

    When I set FX to clipping mask (clip next module or clip all modules) and rotate the object manually, the object diagonally moves to the upper left although the anchor is set to center. This problem doesn't only affect the editor but still occurs when set as wallpaper.

    I found a workaround by putting the mask in an overlay group and rotating the whole group (and rotating back the other objects in the group) but this way another bug occurs and the "hitboxes" (red boxes in the editor) don't rotate with the visible parts of the object (which rotate just

    Autofill should not be provided for Formula editor on Oreo

    Kenneth So · 1 · Last reply by Frank Monza

    As shown in the screenshot below, autofill for password is offered for the formula editor, which usually is not appropriate. What makes it worse is that the BB code buttons, hints or errors get blocked by the prompt, resulting in a poor experience.

    Tested on HTC U11, Android 8.0.0 with Bitwarden password manager.

    I'm also an android developer, and did some quick googling on the Oreo Autofill Framework. Here is what I found that may be useful. There is an attribute "android:importantForAutofill" which can be set to no to disable autofill on that view. But I'm not sure if that

    The music widgets have been working fine until recently. The problem is that when I press the play/pause button on a music widget, a number of things happen 

    - the first touch skips to the next track

    - the second touch goes back to the previous touch

    - the third touch finally plays/pauses the music

    As I said this has only happened recently. I'm on a htc 10 with Action launcher 3 as my launcher. I use Retro music as my music player.

    Toggling animation "ReactOn" setting with formula not working

    Scott Almond · 3 · Last reply by Ŧгє ๓єค

    Hi Frank

    I'm trying to create a compass that when you tap it it toggles the gyroscope animation on/off.

    I create my my global switch "Compass".

    On my compass overlap group, I add an animation, I change the"ReactOn" selection to a formula (Not selected ReactOn type formula).

    I set my formula to $if(gv(Compass)=1,GYRO,DISABLED)$.


    This correctly shows "DISABLED" or "GYRO" in the text preview. depending on my global switch position.

    But the animation ReactOn option does not change and no animation takes place

    I've tested this with other animation

    Global switch in subkomponent can only be linkt to a global color

    Massamino · 4 · Last reply by Frank Monza

    When you put a komponent in another component and want to link the subcomponents global switch to a global switch in the main component, it doesn't work. It can only connect to a color global var in the main component.

    Drop shadow FX does not respect transparency

    Chris Hall · 0 · Posted

    If you use drop shadow from a container item's FX menu, no matter what you set the transparency of the shadow at, it will still show it as the darkest color.


    If you have a color, it will turn darker instead of transparent as you lower the opacity.


    This is only for drop shadow FX, not regular shadows.

    3.29 did not fix all day events

    Andrew Andrew · 2 · Last reply by Kim Phillips

    The update did change the behavior of all day events, so whatever you did is likely on the right track. However, I am in UTC-7 and now my all day events disappear at 10am on the day they are happening. The times appear correct in the calendar and the date is correct on the app data that appears on the widget. But at 10am the widget treats the event as over.
