How do you access doc library workflows when there is no ribbon?

If you are in First Release, SharePoint Online is offering you the ability to see the "new look" of document libraries.  When using the new look, I see no way to access the ribbon. This means I cannot access Nintex for O365. (It also means I cannot get to the Edit Library, Connect to Outlook, Connect to Office, Export to Excel, RSS Feed, Email a Link, and Most Popular Items ribbon commands...)

I understand that the new look is currently optional and you can easily click on "Return to classic SharePoint".  I'm wondering what the process for creating/editing Nintex workflows will be like when the new look is no longer optional.  When using the new look for doc libraries, does anyone know how to access and modify a Nintex for O365 workflow connected to the doc library?

Microsoft support have been notified of this so hopefully it'll be added in, in the meantime we'll have to rely on the classic view.

Could you use site settings, workflows gallery?

Sadly no, that's not on the O365 version.

The tenant admin can define which setting should be used

I did some quick check with the new experience,

the following things won't work anymore:

Custom Form ( includes Nintex Form)

JS-Link

Javascripts (e.g. used within a content part webpart)

Wow, special! I'm looking forward to know where this is going to.

I have noticed that when adding an additional page to the site and adding a listview webpart to the documents library to it, the ribbon features are still available for the document library. Will this be a workaround or will this also be not the case anymore in the future?

In the "New experience" UI buttons to open Workflow Gallery and Form Designer are located on the list/ library menu just above the items, next to the "Flow" and "PowerApp" buttons.

I'm having the same issue as we are doing the Deployment via App Catalog. Did you find any answer on that?
