    Nova is an alternate launcher, so anything you had on the stock launcher isn't going to be there unless you add it to Nova.

    Un-install the launcher and check.

    Nova Launcher has an import function that allows you to import the home screen settings of the stock launcher. This works rather well, except that for widgets it only inserts a placeholder on the home screen. You have to replace the placeholder with the widget that used to be there.

    Go to Nova settings > Backup and import > Import.

    Once you have Nova Launcher set up just as you like, make sure to do a backup from within the same menu.

    I started putting some of my apps into folders in the app drawer in Nova Launcher. Thought I could just move the folders to the display but that didn't work. Couldn't even see the folders and the included apps until I managed to get the drop down menu in the upper left corner of the drawer view. Then had to open the folder by tapping and do the press on each app to get the icons on the chosen screen.
