    SOLVED: I had less than two pages of home screen used, but several folders with quite a few links inside. I cleaned out several of the folders, and can now save to the Home Screen again. Also, DocuShortcut is back to working as advertised.

    Thanks all for the help!

    I did a search on this, found (slightly) older mentions but no solutions that work for me. Using on a Z10, and until recently had no problem saving websites to the home screen. Now I cannot save to the Home Screen from browser, and my Docu Shortcut will not create shortcuts to the home Screen. Anyone else having this issue? Any ideas how to fix it?

    Have you rebooted? You should be able to set website shortcuts to your home screen. Are you sure they haven't been placed somewhere where you aren't looking? Like in a folder or something?

    I have rebooted, pulled battery, cleared browser, even tried changing home screen background thinking that might be a conflict- no joy. Not exactly sure when it stopped working, but I know I've saved to the home screen within the last few weeks- the shortcuts are all still there

    Highly annoying- anyone have any thoughts to help fix this?

    No one else is having this problem??? That makes it even more perplexing...

    You have checked every page you have?

    I have. I only have two home pages, one with single apps and a second with a couple folders of apps and weblinks. I've checked through it all looking for the new saved links- nowhere to be found. I can save as bookmarks with no problem, but links no longer appear anywhere on the homescreen, despite saying they were saved. The last time one saved correctly was 12/24/14, no new apps or os upgrades since then.

    Try removing your docushortcut app and see what happens.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Just tried deleting docushortcut, reboot, still not working...

    Any other apps that effect the home screen? Wallpaper changer?

    No wallpaper changer, no other apps that should affect the homescreen in any way...

    Have you turned off 'settings -> display -> display background when apps are closed'? Could work.

    I usually use that in the "off" position, but I tried turning it on- no good- and off again, still no good...

    I don't know if you could use Sacheis to install a bar for it but I don't have a clue what bar file might control that, browser?

    Not a clue on that one. Plus, using Sachesi for much more than force feeding OS leaks is a step above my knowledge and comfort zone!

    Actually it's quite easy to use. Maybe PM him and see if he knows?

    Thanks, that's a possibility. I'd really like to determine what might have changed to prevent the BB system from working correctly before creating a workaround, though. I'm concerned the issue may create other conflicts as well...

    Open browser, go to any url address, 3 dots, add to homescreen, SAVE (in upper right hand corner) ...
    Just checked, worked for me.
    P.S. Did you use autoloader on 1949? If you just updated apps with Sachesi that may be the issue...

    Thanks- that's exactly how I've always done it, and the phone goes through the motions including popup that says "added to Home Screen". Problem is, no link actually appears on home screen! I'm actually on 1154, did a Blitz update back in November. All worked fine until end of december

    Nope, not a thing. No time this week, but I'm considering a complete reinstall/ restore to see if that works. Still hoping someone will pop up here with an easy and obvious fix to save me the time!

    Starting to think it may be the only option. Hope someone has an idea for you.

    Thanks. Really don't have time to do the restore route, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Then again, maybe the ATT Passport will be available before I have to make the effort, and I'll just swap phones!

    There is a limit to how many there can be added to home screen. I reached my limit thought there was a problem.....deleted on and then it would add again. Very annoying.

  25. Rarebird13's Avatar
    I thought that might be the problem as well, so I deleted a bunch- still didn't work. Anyone happen to know what the limit might be? Does it include contents of home screen folders too, or just the individual total of icons taking home screen real estate?
