I really don't like the limited capabilities of the stock launcher and I've been looking for another one to use. My go to is nova, ut I noticed that when used In landscape mode, there is a vertical line going down the left side of the screen. When I use apex, the app drawer seems to squish all the apps together, and have very large margins which I'm not too fond of.

Is there any way any of these two problems can be fixed? If not, what other launchers should I look into? Also, please dont recommend GO Launcher. I really don't like the work from that developer, and avoid them at all costs =P

In apex launcher you can adjust the margins. I have nine set to none. The layout will be exactly like the stock launcher plus the benefits of apex. Just change your rooted and columns to a higher number.
Hope that helps

I've been using Nova since it came out. Super customizable. All margins, grid size, etc.

I have the margins set at none for the homescreen, however the margins in my app drawer are huge compared to stock. I checked the settings over multiple times.

I can't get margins set right with apex, I have big space at top and bottom of screen, it won't let me place any icons in those areas, any help would be greatly appreciated
