Since 5.0 my gesture shortcut to open quick settings don't work. Only opens notification panel and forces me to swipe twice to get to the quick settings. The built in two-finger swipe works though.
Is this known/a bug/interesting/rubbish?

It's a Lollipop feature that you've to swipe down twice to access the quick settings...
Most probably Lollipop is overriding the Nova gesture you've assigned...
Interesting though.. Post in the Nova beta community so that Kevin notices this anomaly...

On my N5, I have it set to 130% and it's looks like it should, nothing cut off.

Higher resolution of the N9 throwing things out of whack?

Yup, that along with the odd aspect ratio seems to have compounded the problem...

That cures the problem for a few hours, until the bars become grey again. Developers - please help!

Reinstall recommended....
Anyways a factory reset is always recommended after an OTA... I though know the inconveniences...

So if somehow you can add an option to add customisable navigation bar keys for "just" the homescreen and app drawer of Nova launcher that will be pretty cool and I'm sure that will give your app an edge over other launchers.

And in your recent beta roll out, you've tried imitating the look of lollipop, so until you introduce a Nav Bar for non kitkat devices, the look will still look fake. Please consider adding a toggle for a customisable Navigation Bar at the bottom. Thanks.

A navigation bar feature is too much to ask from any android launcher...

Anyone trys to backup the preferences with the nova launcherlr's own backup feature? Both backup to the device and the external sdcard do not work. Both options cause the FC. Personally I don't really care, the launcher backup/restore is a feature that I live without. Since I do all my ballyhoo and restore with the TB. But it looks like K has put some effort into the feature, because I notice the menu is different than before. So I hope the issue will be addressed soon.BTW, my device is LG-E980 running CM11 nightly.

I use it all the time. Never had a problem with it.

Good for you, I must be the anomaly then.
Edit: After a few more trys, the backup feature is working. It take a little bit longer than I expected, but it's working fine.
