Create new page with adding a link

It is still possible in the new editor, but currently only by typing in the link - you can't use a slash command or the toolbar to do it.

See Insert links | Confluence Cloud | Atlassian Support and scroll down to the section on Link to an undefined placeholder page:

Press Enter or Return to create the placeholder.
