It seems that the unique markers were re-enabled in scanner. However, the layer button was very much visible while glyph hacking with the drone. I did not test what happens if you tap the button.
Apparently it's visible when accessing portals and their details too.
Not only is it visible during glyphing, but also when opening a portal, portal details, portal pictures, portal contributions... However, it only appears in the drone remote view and the remote view when looking at a portal via a key. When selecting a portal from the normal map view, it dissappears.
Ack, we're aware and working on a fix in a future update, thanks.
Yep, this is a bit annoying! :P
Duplicate of this (already confirmed) bug:
E: Huh, never knew you could merge threads together.
You forgot to say that this only happens in key or drone view.
Please hide it also when you must enter a passphrase.
Android 10(Miui v11),Redmi 9,build
2.65.1. While hacking via drone - layers button isn't hidden as via regular hack.
Niantic is aware and working on a fix.
Just adding to the list that the layer icon also appears on the Recursion pages and animation lol
And on the level up screen (even though everything else disappears)
Dont forget this one is the same UX bug!!
