I am not sure if this is a bug or just something on my end. I can't find anyone else having this issue or not anywhere. I have Nova Launcher 2.1 and just recently installed Nova Launcher 2.1beta1 and am having the same issues. I wanted to create a shortcut to a document as I have done in the past. I have a few folders on a page to the right of my Home page. For some reason, I can't add any shortcuts. I am using either ES File Explorer or FX. When I hold on a document, and choose "Add to desktop" it would say, "Short cut added to desktop" yet it's no where to be found. However, if I go to the "Touch wiz" launcher, all the shortcuts are there instead...

Any ideas?

Hey buddy, i am in the exact same boat...infact i have posted the same question about a day or so ago here and didn't get any response: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2288152&nocache=1

Im starting to think that im the only guy that wants to home screen my bookmarks/pages, until i seen your post here. I don't get how such a great launcher can not have the ability currently to homescreen bookmarks.

But as you said, when you flip over to another launcher they are there. I really don't know how to fix it or if there is a fix, i hope there is...as i want to continue using Nova.

I am in a similar situation. I guess the recent update of Nova would have bug on it. The issue I have is that I tried to add a S Note shortcut to the homescreen, but it wouldn't show up. It showed up on Touchwiz or other launchers.

What I don't understand is why though there is almost nobody with knowledge of it anywhere. Its like its the forbidden subject that nobody can speak of. I even emailed the developer and got nothing back.

Its just bothersome to me that with all the power that droid phones have, Nova simply can not let one add a shortcut to the home screen from web browsing.

Going back to 1.8 or 1.9 will probably solve this problem. ...
I'm going back. Wish me luck.

however- you post in the official feature request site, for which the admin responds sooner or later http://feedback.novalauncher.com/forums/145180-nova-feature-requests/status/606906 . Or we can spam Nova thread in xda -make the bug popular,until we have some response http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1389071 -There's no easy way to do this as the dev has allegedly been unresponsive to emails.

I was on a moving train at the time on the post and didn't have much time to look. I'll look later.
