Since the uodate that brought the taskbar to the tab s7, which I have to say I love makes life so much easier.
But I have noticed that now when on homescreen the navigation bar is still sitting to right side of screen instead of returning to centre. 
Has anyone else noticed this? Or have I just missed a setting?

Not on my S6Tab. Even after disabling the stupid taskbar I still can't re-center the navigation bar. The ONLY options are "left" and "right"...

Do they (developers) think that their tablets are SO huge that we have difficulty manipulating a centered navigation bar? That's stupid! I think the new left and right positioning is to support the new feature of the App Windows. The navigation bar WOULD be centered below one of the App Windows WERE you to be using them...🙄... However if that's not something you CHOOSE to use or at least not ALL the time, the annoying far left and right navigation bar positioning looks and FEELS really stupid...🙄🤦🏼‍♀️

This solution only works though if you do not want to use the task bar. As the bug is present only when task bar in use

Yeah, really annoying, I much prefer it at the centre, why change it and not even give the option to choose it, dumb decision

Same on my s6. The only option similar is to change to swipe gestures and have the swipe points in the place the buttons used to be. Because of muscle memory that seems to be better for me than having the tiny the buttons now on the right

Had this same issue (navigation bar symbols were either left or right, and very close together). Fix for me was to use tablet in landscape then go into navigation bar setting and the "centre" option re-appeared.
Hope that helps

Mine is the same on any screen. They are on the right not centered. I preferred them in the center. The settings only let you pick left or right. Has anyone figured our how to put them back in the center?
