Add ‘New Document’ Option in Right Click Context Menu in Ubuntu 18.04 [Quick Tip]

Rejected submission by Derick Sullivan Muhnyong Lobga at 2018-04-19 05:34:58

New versions of Ubuntu like 17.10, 18.04 etc don’t include the option to create a new text document in right-click context menu anymore. Here is how to bring that useful option back.

The other day I was trying to create a new text file in Ubuntu 18.04. While in Nautilus, I right clicked and to my surprise, I didn’t see the option to create a new document. This option in the right-click context menu allowed creating an empty text file. []
