Documenting Problems That Were Difficult To Find The Answer To

App Names Missing in App List/Drawer in CyanogenMod/Android

In CyanogenMod 12.1 Android I was worried when I upgraded and the app icons were missing names/missing text in the app list (known in CyanogenMod as the “app drawer”).

Go back to your home screen. Then touch an unused area and hold until you see the home screen settings. Then drag up the panel from the bottom to reveal home screen options.

Tap and hold until home screen options appear, then drag the bottom panel up the screen
