[Mobile Beta] No way to add shapes or text, just pics

Hello, I am totally confused. Where are the controls to add or edit text or a graphic of any sort OTHER THAN a photo, video, or generative AI? Those are available for every layer. But even if I open a previous file I've made and select a "shape" of clip art, the only thing it let's me do is change the color or delete. I primarily use Adobe express to make infographics. So when the "shapes" disappeared in the original, I was sent to this beta. The first time I used it, I could find "shapes" or "icons" I believe it was called. Now all it will let me do is add the things I mentioned above. I SO Disappointed in Adobe Express. It went from being the fastest way to make simple graphics to this bloated version where it takes forever to do anything simple, but the AI is right in front. Please change it back to a SIMPLE interface of the following: background, photo, design assets, shapes, text. Then just put all this new bloated AI, etc, in its own area. People who want that can go there. I now have to switch to Canva or some other program (paid or unpaid, I don't care) that will let me make infographics (no AI) with basic clip art shapes. Even in the 90s I could have made a basic infographics in Windows 95, but not in this new version of your app. Go back to the EXPRESS element. That's the niche for this app. There are tons of others (picsart, etc) doing the layers and AI who gave been doing it for years.

Hi @Wendy35840364ynmh , getting to know a new product (as it's very different from the old app) can be challenging. In your case, you'll just need to use the purple "+" button and you'll see the bottom menu allows you to add all kinds of objects to your design. If you click on 'elements' you'll see a range of shapes and icons. Hope this helps! 

Thanks!
Andy
