Can you change ANYTHING on the stock lock screen?

No worries. Ah well. Do you think changing my launcher (say, to Nova) would change the phone's lock screen settings & therefore capabilities?

Hi. I am in your time zone in London. I suddenly started to get threatening PM's from the US! I don't want to mess with THAT lady!, so anything you want, really. :)
OK seriously , MrsM is terrific.
Some stuff I can figure out and I've learned a lot in 3 months, but I can miss the obvious.
You have a GS3, you have done a recovery mode clearance and unticked stuff in Google so the other thing is ok for now.
I d/l chronus and got it on my lock screen, which I rarely use but keep 3 app shortcuts on the 1 page. I now have a chronus widget on a second page. I am on a Note 3 also, and have a GS2 on 4.1.2 with me too.
Phew!

Have you unticked the lock screen clock before adding the chronus widget? Just the way I think.
I may be intermittent on this for an hour if you want to look now. And you can come back to me any time you want to spend on this.

Not sure I get this. :)

I thought she might be swiping the lock screen at the bottom and that's why she didn't get a second page. For me, I have to swipe at the top of the lock screen in order to get to the second screen, otherwise it just unlocks the phone.

I wish I were there too, and I 'm closer. I understood you a bit more reading again. I only use swipe to unlock. to get to the 2nd page I obviously have to hold on the lock screen before going left or right to a new page with the plus sign to add a widget of your choice. Do you think that hold in first then move left might have been lost in translation.
I see her lock screen page, no multiple widgets, but it should work the same as you say.

I don't know why I shortened your name to MrsM. Sorry. Even on a Note 3 my eyes are not good.:)

Lol, I'm good. I've been called worse.

So you have to hold your lock screen to slide it? I just swipe mine from the clock either right or left. Go ahead, try it, lol.

I took off my personal info for screenshots before I added the Chronus widget, so I just have the bare stock clock on the main lock screen. So yes, I guess if I touch it near the clock the white border comes up and I can swipe from that area, otherwise I just unlock my screen. Am I with you?

I never bothered with this side of the phone before. I guess with swipe to unlock off it will swipe pages straight away.
Alright I've got 4 lock screens. Clock home which extends down for events, the chronus widget screen, a selectable apps screen and an add/plus screen.

Yes, that's the way it works for me. I also have the agenda that pulls down, but mine is full of personal stuff, lol, mainly bills. I use 3 of them, one on pull down shade and one on homescreen so I won't forget anything. Paranoia strikes deep. 😨

I had multiple widgets back on. If you turn multiple widgets off, you cant swipe anything there is only 1 page. And Juliet doesn't have a multiple widgets option.

"on some devices u may have to reboot for widget to show in widget picker"
