Widgets get rearranged randomly on Note 8

I have created a widget that I like, but every few days the elements get randomly moved around the screen and the only way to get the old placement back is to manually rearrange them.

This has happened 5-7 times in the last month and I've tried a number of fixes (restoring from a save point, restarting the phone, etc), but none of these work.

Please see attached images.


Please ensure the following:

- You resize the widget to its final size BEFORE loading the preset

- In the widget options the size mode is set to "LOCKED"

- In the orientation option your device orientation is detected correctly should show something like "Default (Portrait)"

I have double checked that the settings were correct. The orientation and size options had been set to what you suggested, but the issue still persists.
