OnePlus 6, stock, MS Launcher beta 5.6.0.52883.

Attached video illustrates a possible issue/lack of design. I'm not sure if it isn't design. Well, bad design as for me.

Changing an element icon in {"Home Screen"|"Dock"|"App Drawer"} won't affect other launcher "instances"

- I made sure it affects shortcuts and folders

- Change an element icon for different in Home Screen

- Open "Dock"|"App Drawer"

- Icon is not changed for the element

- Launcher restart didn't help, may be whole restart could fix it, dunno

- In attached video follow for manipulations with icon for "OneDrive"

 

EDITED:

Looks like I had an issue which was gone after reboot.

Changing icon in "Add drawer" affects system.

I forgot to mention, that icon synchronization partially works in "Your Feed". So it is not some kind of limitation.

When you change an icon for some app in "App Drawer" then when you open "Your Feed" app will be shown with updated icon.
