Fire 8 HD Show mode issues

This post was last modified: 25 Nov 2018 02:53 PM by Robinmalhotra.
I just received the Fire OS update and it installed without difficulty on my Fire 8 HD. However, I have found several issues with show mode:

Show mode continually displays "things to try" even though I have "Rotate Once" activated on the Home Cards menu. I assumed this setting would work the same way it works on the Spot, but currently does not.

If I ask Alexa to "Show me the Weather", the textual weather information does not fully display. Some of it is truncated in the vertical direction and cannot be brought into view.

Still playing and learning but Show Mode looks like it will earn a place on my desk.
