Flashed the latest factory image to my Nexus 7 (2013), cannot seem to slide to the right for Google Now (looked thorugh settings), nor does it seem I can delete unused homescreens. Any suggestions/known issues?

Lollipop doesn't come with the Google Now Launcher as the default. You'll need to install the Google Now Launcher from the playstore if you haven't already. After you install that, once you press the home key it should ask you which launcher you want to use. Make sure you choose the correct Google Now Launcher, select "Always" and you should be good to go.

If you have already installed the Google Now Launcher, I would suggest uninstalling it and then reinstalling it.

I had just had the same experience. Factory image with Google Now installed. I found that I needed to go into "Google Settings" and "Search & Now". For some reason, Google Now was switched off. I turned it on and now I have my swipe for Google Now back. I hope this helps.
