Alrighty! I don't understand why Google wants me to have this omnipresent search bar on every home screen if there obviously is Google Now / Google Search embedded into the launcher if you go to the left page. So after some searching I found a way to hide it. But it will show again if you go to the left screen; no functionality is lost. Of course digging through the code I found some more things which are customizable
Google search bar / automatically show search bar on Google Now
apps from the app drawer
app dock / auto hide
all apps button
Icon pack (Premium)
supports any icon pack
per app icon change
automatically applies new icon packs

Since the feature requests are poping up like crazy and users are not making an effort to explain the features and say thank you after I implemented it, I decided to only accept feature requests if you follow the instructions below. But that doesn't imply that I will implement it. I want to see some effort because I will most certainly have it and remember it's all done in my free time. It's not that I do this for living
So if you post a feature request please include
say "Thanks" and be grateful for what you already got
think about your feature and whether it is useful for others, too
properly explain what you really want
I never used Nova and such so I don't understand the request if you just name the setting you want.
I think this is only fair since I spent hours making this module and users don't even take a minute to properly explain what they want and even worse are not grateful for what they already got. For free.
hit the restart button within the app to restart your launcher
In some cases the Google Doodle will not be loaded How to resolve: pull down in GNow State: This seems to be a problem of the launcher. This error also occurs if the module isn't activated at all.
If the grid size or hotseat count is changed icons/widgets may disappear (especially if you decrease sizes) Severity: Keep it in mind
Resized icons or grid settings might lead to different sizes State: working on it for the next update
Some settings will lead to icons being cut on the left and the right side even though enough space is available State: working on it for the next update
If you've made changes to the launcher using apps like AppSettings (which is awesome by the way), you might encounter problems
Please report bugs if you find them! A good bug report includes repro steps and logcat and Xposed log file. You can paste them to www.pastebin.com. Screenshots and screen recordings are very important, too. If you provide all of this when reporting a bug it will make it a lot easier for me to help you.
If you report any bug mentioned above and/or ask questions which could have been answered if you've read the OP, please allow me to ignore your post as you did mine.
@rovo89 of course for the framework but also for his support (really nice guy)
You can help!
You are free to browse through the source code on Github. If you find anything worthy to improve, please let me know. You can also fork this and send pull requests to me. Any help is much appreciated!
Looking forward to seeing this progress! I like GNL, but there are a few things keeping me on Nova launcher - swiping up on homescreen icons, category tabs in the app drawer (or at least folders), and the ability to remove labels and apply icon packs. Everything else I could take or leave.
Regardless of whether these features make it to your app, thanks for the effort and keep up the good work.
