Android 6.0: how to edit/delete/move drawer icons?

I installed CM 13 S6 theme in Redmi 1S. I was struggling to edit or delete or move the icons in drawer. In Android 5.0, if I go to settings about phone check advance options, come back and I'll get the option.

Solution: In Android 6.0 (Marshmellow) to turn the advanced option you need to hold that gear icon for 2-3 secs. Then you move or edit or change the icons in drawer.

Please use it at your own risk. This ROM is still in development stage. There are many bugs in this ROM. I like multiwindow feature in this ROM which is stable and flawless. User reported many issues including SD card not working, unable install app from Play store. However this issue is faced by few of the users.

Don't use this ROM in any other Xiaomi device. Use only for REDMI 1S.

4. While Screen Recording System Ui Force Closes
5. After Disconnecting From Charge Some time System Ui Force Closes
6. Advanced Reboot Option Dosent Work
7. Data Doesnt Work

Pros : -  1. MultiWindow works Flawlessly....
2. Cm 12 Themes Can Also Be Used On Cm 13
3. Battery Life Is Also Good 4.30 mins SOT with Using Whatsapp And Facebok

So Dont Expect This To Be A Daily Driver N Hope That Stable Build Comes ASAP

Will 32 GB memory card slow down Moto E?

Have been using since an year. No lags or slow down. I am using Samsung MicroSD Card Class 10 48 MB/s Memory Card in my Moto E. Below is speed details

Phone to PC transfer speed - 14 Mbps
PC to Phone transfer speed - 10 Mbps

The 48 MB/s specification is the read speed. If you play HD videos in your phone, it will make use of the whole speed.

My PC is running Windows 10. Speed may differ from various factor. Phone to PC is actually speed of my PC hard disk. Whlie PC to Phone is the real memory card speed.
