2 more problems (still on 5.7.1)

Post by Alfhw »

Hi,
I've found 2 more problems.

Samsung S7 Flat with Android 8.0 stock and Epim 5.6.2 Pro

1) Problem with widget

Open one module with widget. e.g. Calendar: OK!
Go to the home screen of Android with the Android home button
Open another module with widget. e.g. Compiti (Tasks): OK!
Again Go to the home screen of Android with the Android home button
Open another module with widget. e.g. Note: PROBLEM! The module Compiti (Tasks) opens instead of Note! :shock:
Again Go to the home screen of Android with the Android home button
Open another module with widget. e.g. Password: PROBLEM! Again the module Compiti (Tasks) opens instead of Password! :shock:

Seems that after 2 iterations, widgets are stuck with the second module you open.
To "reset" the problem you have to close Epim from Recents Apps using Android OS.
Affects all widget excepts "Sync PC" which is the only one working correctly.

2) Problem with badge
Icon of EPIM should shows number of notifications.
I have 4 notifications left on the notification bar but badge on Epim shows always 1.

Bye

I'm unable to reproduce the 1-st point. Please remove the shortcuts and create new ones, will it solve the problem?
As for the number of notifications - basically you get info that there's one notification which could contain a number of different reminders. We'd need to show the reminders separately from one another and each in its own separate window in oder for the number to be 4.

Yes, removing and creating fixes the bug. Strange but works. :D

Are you sure? Because Android 8.0 introduces badges with number. For example if I receive 2 SMS there is only 1 icon in the notification bar and 1 notification in the lock screen (with number 2) so no separate windows, but badge on the message app's icon shows 2.
