    I would like to know what the icon on the Nova Launcher edit screen (looks like a circle with a line through it) does. It seems to hide the app but not sure and also don't see how to undo it.

    Any ideas? Nova Icon Question.jpg

    That just hides the app from view in the app drawer, as far as I know.

    To undo it, go into Nova settings, and find 'Hidden Apps', and change it.

    I don't really know, lol.
    I have Nova, but use something else.

    Let me go look.

    Yes, the only place I can produce those particular icons is if I long press on an icon in the app drawer (with the home screen layout unlocked).

    Do the same with an icon on the home screen and you get a cross (remove icon) rather than a "hide" option.

    Yeah, I have been playing with the settings now for a while and cannot find it or how to reveal what is hidden.

    My guess is that if nothing is hidden, then the unhide option will not appear.

    To find what is hidden, goto Nova settings>App Drawer>Hide apps

    Now I see why I didn't see it- it is not a feature on the free version.

    I see it in the greyed out feature area.
