Thanks for the fix. Is there a fix for bottom corners in stock Pie rom? Asus used some png image files in stock Oreo instead of overlay method to round the display corners and the notch that disables 5 rows of pixels at the bottom of the screen.

It might be possible by modifying SystemUI or Framework but I haven't had time to play with that.

However, I'm hopeful that Asus will fix this in the next update. If not, we'll find a way ?.

Hi,

Applied changes as cutout is good but icons are hiding.

rechecked with default setting.. icon not hiding. But while applying these change icons are hide.

Simply you can check with and without.

Thanks

Please update your module, the issue has been addressed.
However, it's the normal Android behavior, some space will still be unused due to the way our notch is designed.

First enable Developer Options
You can find the Display cutout option under Drawing tab (possibly the last option).
actually PE CAF rom don't have that option visible. Anyway, I'm now in Lineage OS. I did find that option and enabled it but sadly it's just like anyother rom's corner cutout. I wish it could fix the notch area's corner also. Hope you will.

    Check what happens when you tap on Tall Cutout.
    If still not working, you can ask the rom maintainer to add support for ElegantNotch.
