    Don't know why but can anyone explain how I can view on top of home screen my time, battery level, mobile signal etc. It only does it when I open an app.
    My note 8 was no problem.

    Go to Nova settings - look & feel and make sure that 'Show Notification bar' is enabled.

    You're talking about status bar, no?

    Do you have Good Lock or QuickStar installed in your phone?

    Make sure in the Good Lock settings that the notification/status bar is not disabled and if you did any changes set them back to default values.

    Ok. Since the problem is only happening in your home screens it probably means that there is some glitch in the launcher. Switch the notification bar toggle in Nova settings off and back on, restart Nova as Mustang7757 said and then restart the phone. If the problem persists switch back to the stock launcher (Touchwizz, Samsung Experience or whatever Samsung calls it these days) and see if the notification bar is still missing. This could give us some clues of where the problem is.

    Another thought. Are you using a dark wallpaper? If so, make sure that the 'dark icons' option is off in Nova settings - Look & feel.

    no dark theme. if I go to stock launcher notification bar is there. so I think Nova is the culprit.

    Then try the restart options posted before and see what happens. Don't worry, if you restart Nova you won't lose your setup. Also, you could post a couple of screenshots with your home screen and the Look & feel settings and we'll try to find different solutions.

    Yeah, that's one of the things I was thinking. The settings in the beta version look a bit different.

    Sometimes people dont realize opting in on beta for nova gets you newer version and features but has bugs and makes the launcher glitchy at times.
