    Anyone know how to get rid of a widget that has somehow found its way behind my dock so I cannot get to it to move it? I use LauncherPro+.

    Thank you!

    Have you tried restarting LP?

    Yes. I have tried restarting and also resetting to defaults. I've tried to uninstall that widget as well (if it matters, BatteryLife and Signal Strength Pro) and all I get are black boxes that I can't read what it says besides "problem" because it's too far down the homescreen.

    Do you or did you ever have the option set for 5 icon rows on the homescreen? Did you add more homescreen rows after the homescreen grid options were added? The most common way for that to happen is to have 5+ rows, add a widget or something to the bottom row, then go back to fewer homescreen rows than you had before. First of all, don't use the option for 5 icon rows anymore. The homescreen grid options are all you need. To fix it, in your launcherpro preferences, go to homescreen settings and set your number of homescreen rows to something higher than it is now. You should be able to get rid of the widget after that. Make sure nothing else is on the bottom row before changing it back to fewer rows.

    What happens when you rotate the phone to landscape? Can you get to it then?

    No problem :)

    I suggest you browse through the official launcher pro forum here:

    LauncherPro Forum • Index page

    You can find out a lot of information about launcherpro there. I remember reading about your exact problem there some time ago.
