Default [Q] S5 Weather Widget doesnt display properly in other launchers

I'm surprised not to see any posts on this.... if you use Apex or Nova and then add the stock weather widget it works but its really zoomed in. For example when its a clear night outside there is a nice picture of a lone tree with a starry sky above it. But on the other launchers its zoomed in on a small section of the sky and you cant even tell there is supposed to be a tree in it. I have the same grid size on both/all launchers and have tried both bigger and smaller grids but always with the same result.

Is there a way to make it work?

Maybe I'll try the dev of the Launchers as I'm sure they would know what is going on

The first one, EZ Weather HD Beautiful Widget actually looks like a widget which wasn't designed in 1996.

Great find young sire.
