@thomasboxley Sorry for making you angry! There's an issue open about this: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/nautilus/-/issues/524
Nobody has picked it up, but it looks like a great candidate for a first contribution to the Nautilus project.

I am pissed off rn. Chilly, rainy morning ruined! The behavior of Nautilus when creating new files is goddamn ridiculous. I right click > New Document > Empty File. On any other OS it would then highlight the file and let me rename it. Not on #GNOME. It just plops down a file called Empty File. Even doing the slow double click on the file like you can do on Windows doesn't let me rename it. Instead I HAVE to F2 it or right click > Rename.
It is proven! I am tboxley on Keybase: https://keybase.io/tboxley/sigchain#386b60c412d6ebfc215be81e01480801633714050e14a3d56b36722c921538e10f
