I downloaded the latest nova launcher named #materinova.15 , in its previous versions I could add a shortcut by holding a blank space in the home screen and chose shortcuts, but in the latest release I can't find any options for adding shortcuts, though I can put apps on the home screen by going to app drawer and holding and dragging the app to the home screen, but I can't find the shortcuts. Please help, this is my favorite app so don't want to leave it for this little bad thing?
That's because they are sorted alongside all the widgets. That's not very intuitive but at least they're here!
1) open the "nova action" widget 2) locate the app you want to add to the home screen and longpress on it.
The "nova action" widget is the 1st one in the nova widget drawer, if its not on your home screen you need to add it 1st
