i have installed xperia home 8.1.A.0.8 (latest for me, preinstalled with lollipop 5.1.1 so far no update to 8.0.A.1.2) launcher in my Z3, but in landscape mode, there is issue with text alignment (or wrap). text (name of app) is covered by another app´s icon.

The cause for items sometimes missing in Xperia Home has been found and it will be fixed in a future software update for the phone. Thanks for providing us with logs and the video!
Is the text alignment always like that or is it when the search and menu items are missing?

That looks very strange. On your screenshot, it also seems you don't have the search function and menu on the left side. It looks like you're on the home screen but with Google Search turned off but in that case, the page indicator should be at the top and not at the bottom.
I tested this here but this doesn't happen for me in a Z3 on 5.1.1 with Xperia Home 8.1.A.0.8. When you say that you have installed Xperia Home 8.1.A.0.8, do you mean that you have downloaded it from a 3:rd party source or something like that?

The latest version of Xperia Home for Z3 is 8.1.A.0.8, it's included in our update to 5.1.1.
I recommend that you try to clear data for Xperia Home under Settings -> Apps -> All and that you then restart your phone but please note that this will reset Xperia Home to default settings.
Besides the text alignment issue you have you are also missing some elements of Xperia Home. On the screenshot you posted you should also have a menu and a magnifying glass at the top left.

I'm sorry for the late reply.
I have not been able to replicate this issue yet. Do you still see this in your phone?

it happens from time to time, really dont know why. then i have to restart the phone and it works fine for few days and then it starts happening again...

Sorry to hear that you still see the issue.
Would it be possible for you to try to capture a log from your phone if it happens again and share this with me?
To do this:
Settings > About phone > Build number, tap 7 times on the build number
Go back and select Developer options and turn on "USB debugging"
The next time it happens, Settings > Developer options, select "Take bug report". When the report is ready share it to Google Drive and then send me a PM with a link and i will forward it internally for investigation.
