I am running into an issue where clicking the "new" option in the document library header opens the same dialog as clicking "upload".
A similar question was asked here, What's the difference between "New Document" and "Upload Document"?, but the solution is not working for me. The document library is setup to only handle Word Documents and I have assigned a template using ListSettings->ConentTypes(Document)->AdvancedSettings->Enter the Url of an existing document template. I am using a .dotx that is essentially a blank word document. I am experiencing the same issue on chrome and internet explorer
According to this, What's the difference between "New Document" and "Upload Document"? , answer the default toolbar has the new button referring to "upload.aspx", but that doesn't make much since to be because the upload button also points to Upload.aspx. You can change it to "show toolbar", but I don't think it fits the theme as well + wouldn't I need to do that with every library?
This is Sharepoint 2016. Any ideas?
