I'm trying to create a remote event receiver solution for SharePoint Online using VS 2019 community edition. I created an empty SP Add-in project, but when I try to add a new item, the event receiver template is not present. In fact, Office/SharePoint node itself is missing (attached screenshot). The same happens for VS 2022 community edition as well. Office/SharePoint dev tools is already installed.

Could you please help me figure out what I'm missing here?

Add new item page

You selected Add > New item on the Web project. Try instead to select Add > New item on the AddIn project.
