I'm glad to hear that you've found a solution to your first issue.
I am, however, unable to reproduce the second issue you've described. Could you please have a look at the sample project I've attached and let me know if I'm missing something important?
If you're unable to reproduce the issue in the attached project, may I kindly ask you to open a new support ticket and send over a sample project which demonstrates the issue there so that I may further assist you?
I will be awaiting your reply.
