    Hi all. I'm trying out Nova Launcher (free) this weekend. I like it a lot, except for one thing...

    On my stock, unrooted Eltevo I habitually use two scenes, Work and Home. Different wallpapers, icons, homescreen apps and dock apps for each. Using Nova, when I switch scenes only the wallpaper changes, all else remains the same as the scene I installed Nova from. No doubt because scenes are a function of Sense. Is there a way to have a similar function with Nova (either free or Prime)? Obviously, I could do it manually, but that is kinda time consuming. :slug:

    Thanks in advance.

    moved to app section to get potentially more Nova users to see your questions and offer help.

    Suggested to message the dev with this question also...

    What you could do is use a separate launcher for home/work. I wonder if theres an app that would swap launchers easily?

    The nova dev is a nice guy and an Android Forums member. He also has a beta test community on Google Plus so if youre on there, you should sign up for beta testing and post your suggestion.
    The only problem i can see with it is that Nova is designed to be light and fast so having multiple "profiles" might bog it down too much :thumbup:
