I recently started using folders to organize my apps, but I've noticed since then that I can not add any shortcuts to the homescreen. If I try to drop an item on the home screen, it instead gets put into a folder (apparently at random, no less). This happens even if I drop the icon on a completely empty screen with no folders.

If I drag the app out of the folder back to the home screen and drop it, it goes to a different folder instead.

Running Android 2.3.5

What device and launcher? They vary widely. –  eldarerathis Oct 7 '11 at 20:50

This is a reported bug which hasn't yet gotten any attention.

A workaround is to use long-press to add items rather than dragging them.

Sigh... Thanks for the workaround. –  Asmor Oct 8 '11 at 16:37
