I just noticed another bug:
If the initial (splash) screen is set not to show the status bar from the screen properties, any new screen opens without a visible status bar, even if “ShowStatusBar” property is set to true. Manually attempting to set the status bar (using blocks) to visible fails with no response.
However, trying to hide the status bar programmatically (if the initial screen is set to show) on another screen succeeds.
On Android 7.1.2, using the latest companion App on a Physical Device.
