Debian Stretch (Gnome) - Standard install
I have noticed, the "New Document" option is not shown in the context
menu by default. You have to create an empty (text) file in
"xdg-user-dir TEMPLATES" to enable this option.
Of course it is only my opinion, but isn't it a common feature for
feature file browsers to offer this by default?
I was thinking about filing this as a bug (severity:wishlist) against
the nautilus package unless there is a rationale why it shouldn't be
default. Has this been discussed already?
