Create new document has been removed, why?

Why the create a new document feature has been removed?. Why do i have to open a terminal and do a touch command to create a new simple file?
Do you think This was a good decision?

The following command re-enables it.

mkdir -p ~/Templates && touch ~/Templates/Empty\ Document.txt

It has not been removed: it has been improved in the Summer of Code 2022.

You’re still required to create a Templates directory in your home, because distributions cannot ship template files themselves—it is a limitation of the XDG user directories, as they only exists in the user’s home directory, and applications/distributions cannot create files there upon installation.

You don’t need to use the terminal at all: create a Templates folder using Nautilus, and create empty template files using the desired application.
