An “Insert object” option has been added which allows you to freely add new chats, tables, text boxes and images to the slide. Previously you could only add new objects by selecting a new layout template or by copying/pasting an existing object.
The Insert option is available in the context menu on right click (see image below) and in the bottom of the slide panel (see image below).
