    Bettercut and Helix Launcher issues

    Having a little issue with using these two together. I have helix set as my default home right now. I removed all the icons from the regular home screen but now when I open Bettercut it isn't showing any icons to edit. The only way I can do it is to create a new shortcut which is a little time consuming. Will icons available to edit only show up when they are placed on the stock home screen???

    Go to the regular home screen and drag the shortcuts you want to edit on to the desktop. Then make your edits. Then go to the helix home screen.

    Alternatively, you can just create new activity shortcuts. Those will show up on every home screen.

    The shortcuts you want to edit need to be on the stock home screen for it to show up in better cut.

    Could you rename orignial Home Launcher to save/disable it (I know people are doing it to keep it from running in the back ground) and then rename the Helix Launcher to the same name as the original to get better cut to edit short cuts like on the original home screen?

    Talk about a run-on sentence.
