    I'm a long time Nova Prime user and I love the launcher and it's options. I do, however, not see a way to do split-screen. Am I missing something or just being bone-headed?

    Custom launchers don't have control over these features, they are handled by the stock launcher from the app switcher/Recent apps. Open the recent apps, long press tap the top icon on one the app cards and the option should show up there.

    You can also do the same as suggested above (while using an app, this won't work while on the homescreen) and tap and hold an app from the recently open apps and drag to the top or bottom of the screen (you'll see a blue shadow appear) or drop in the middle to launch the app in floating window mode.

    Thanks all. After trying One UI for a moment I realize that I've become way too spoiled by Nova and can't choose to switch to One UI. At some point perhaps I'll be able to do the split-screen while using Nova.

    It shouldn't affect which launcher you are using, once you access the Recent apps the stock one (OneUI) takes control and the split screen should work.

    Thanks, I was being bone-headed. Mustang777 set me straight too.

    Yeah something has changed. With my Note 10. I used to be able to long press an app in the recent app window and select split screen as an option. Now, see below, I get the error that I can't. Using Nova, just as I did with my N10

    You can't from "home screen". You have to have another app open.

    You can do it through app Edge or through multitasking recent apps page

    How do you change to see your recent apps in that format?

    An app in the Samsung app store called Good Lock. After you install that, look for the plug in called Task Changer. In the options for that, there's several ways to setup one's recent apps.
