Drag the app icon from the app drawer to the home launcher > release > long press the app icon > drag it to the bottom row.

Thanks for quick reply. What do you mean by App drawer, is it the main list of all apps? If yes then I can only drag them to the home screen. If I try to move them again they got stuck at the bottom edge and get dropped there. Is it something that I'm missing? I also tried by adding shortcuts but there are no apps...

I just removed them from the bottom (quick launch) > and I was able to drag them, so let's try again 

 

1. open the list of apps (app drawer) 

2. select an app 

3. long press the app

4. drag it to the homescreen

5. release the screen/app

6. long press the same app icon until it vibrates

7. drag it to the bottom (quick launch)

Re: Dock / bottom row icons

Doesn't work for me even though I was able to add custom apps there in the past. I'm now wondering if I incidentally blocked the quick launch somehow... Is there a way to fix/unlock that if the normal dragging stops at the edge of home screen?

Restarted several times since yesterday. It started at the same time when my Messaging app froze. I cannot anwser to an existing conversation it forrces me to close the app since it stopped working. Maybe it's correlated to some system update? I'm really stuck, never had any problem with my XZ before.
