    Has anyone else run into this?

    After my Droid updated to 2.2 this morning, I noticed that one of the changes was that instead of 1 additional "screen" to the left and to the right of the main home "screen", there are now 2 on either side of the home screen. So, I decided to un-folder some of my apps since I now had more space (I like to be able to see the actual widget icons, rather than having them hidden behind a boring, white folder, even tho the folder kept things nicely organized).

    So I started moving widgets out of some folders and onto the new screens. But Droid isn't "accepting" widget icons to be placed from about the midway point on any screen downwards. When you've selected the widget that you want to move and try to position it midway or lower and let go, the widget disappears. It doesn't end up where you let go of your finger. So you have to go back into the main widget menu, hunt for that app, and try again. This has happened on the home screen, the old left/right screens, and the new, additional left/right screens.

    And what's also weird is that where widget icons used to exist in the lower half of a Droid screen, if you try to place a widget icon in that same space now (post 2.2 upgrade), Droid won't take it. So I've had to place the widget icons way up top, while the lower half of the screen looks blank and unused : /

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Ahhh, the good old battery pull. Doh, I should have thought of that! Thanks, johnnycool. After I did that, my icons were staying put, phew. dancedroid

    Ohhh, sorry I missed your original thread. I'd scrolled through the first 7 pages in the "bug/glitch" thread and hadn't come across the icon issue. Where had you posted yours?

    Thanks again!
