Ticker not showing

a few versions ago there was a nice feature of ticker showing in the status bar whenever one copies a Chinese word or phrase.
Now this feature is gone (since 3.2.56 I think), on latest (to date) version as well.
Just no ticker, no matter how you set this up in Options.
Any workarounds?

What version of Android are you running? Google got rid of notification tickers in Android 5.

If you're referring to heads-up notifications (pop a little thing down from the top of the screen), there's a complex set of rules concerning when those might appear - if you're on Android 8, make sure to configure Pleco's notification channel as having high importance.
Thanks Mike, didn't know Android lost this feature, I'm on 6.0.1. Other pop ups are ok, though the ticker was nice and informative
