NEW BUBBLES: Theater and Sunlight
► find them hidden in the Wear Cloud Editor on the phone → tap cloud marker to move them to favorites/archive/folder
► or enable option “Show hidden apps” on the watch → find them in the archive cloud → long press to edit → assign to Quick Swipe and/or unhide by moving into favorites/archive/folder

These two showed up in the system launcher, which was not necessary and only increased clutter. Now these too can only be opened from the Bubble Cloud. Hopefully nobody relied on using these outside of Bubble Clouds

Until this version, if you tapped on a bubble in the folder (to open an app, contact or bookmark) the folder was closed. So after exiting the app the folder was no longer on the screen. Now there is both a global option to change the default behaviour, and you can also control this on a per-folder basis. The default is actually to keep the folder open, as I find this to be the more intuitive behaviour, but if you liked the way it worked in previous versions, you can enable the option to Close folder on bubble tap. Note: Tasker and SmartHome bubbles have always kept the folder on screen, the new option will not change this.

If you enable the new option in the Peek Card configuration screen (long press the Peek Card to get to it) the peek card will be cleared from the screen after you view the connected notification (i.e. unread count=0). How can you read it?
► Swipe up on the inactive screen to access your notifications
► Flick your wrist out (if wrist gestures are enabled in WearOS)
► Tap on the peek card to see it (some notifications don’t become unread when tapped, this is still a bug in WearOS)
► The peek card is not hidden as long as you have more unread notifications (the next unread will be shown, unless WearOS bugs out)
► Do not enable this option if you need one tap access to media player notifications
► This new option relies on the unread count, which is not fully fixed in WearOS. So it is not 100% reliable, but better than nothing. The wrist flick seems to work best.
This option was inspired by John A. Morris

► Rounded corners are only available for pop up folders!
► When editing a folder, only the lower left corner is rounded (as preview). Double tap the folder background to hide the caption bar → all four corners are rounded

► You can now set a margin for both widgets and folders
► For widgets the default is “0” (as it was until now)
► For folders the bubble spacing was used for margin too, now they are only connected by default, you can adjust the margin separately. Restore defaults to relink spacing and margin

Similar to the bubble spacing, both margin and corner roundness can be controlled from the caption bar of the folder (without opening Cloud Configuration). Use the same seekbar. Long press the ⊕ to select which is set:
► blue⊕ = corners
► pink⊕ = margins
► white⊕ = bubble spacing [default]
