Issues managing library elements in Figma Slides

I’ve run across a few issues with managing library elements in Figma Slides…

  1. I’m not able to truly start from scratch, with no existing font or color styles. When I click ‘start from scratch’ when creating a new Figma Slides document, it uses the pre-made “Light Slides” template, which is not what I want.
  2. The above point is annoying because I want to literally start from scratch, but also because I can’t get rid of the original template styles, even when I create and publish a new one. The original template is still available in the “Template Styles” dropdown when you’re editing an entire slide, and the font and color styles are still available in various dropdown menus, in both editing modes. I only want one template/library/whatever we’re calling it for a Figma Slides document, not multiple. Is there a way to erase the original template/replace it/or actually start from scratch?
  3. It looks like I’m able to delete existing font and color styles in the orange Figma Slides editing mode, but not in the blue Design Mode. Can we get that functionality on both ends?
  4. I’m unable to edit the names of color styles in Figma Slides…can we get that functionality?
  5. In the orange Figma Slides editing mode, I’m not able to select colors from shared Figma Design libraries – I can only select colors from the existing Figma Slides library in the file. Shouldn’t the colors and fonts from shared Figma Design libraries be accessible in the orange Figma Slides editing mode, not just in the blue Design Mode?
