How do I combine 'Create blank page' and 'Create from template' in Confluence 6.0?

Recently upgraded Confluence from 5.4.3 to 6.0.6. When creating a page in 5.4.3, the user selected the Create button at the top of the page, and the Create options listed both blank page and templates.  In 6.0.6, there are two buttons side by side:  Create (Create blank page) and 3 dots (Create from template). Users are opting for Create blank page because it's obvious.  But I need them to create from a document template, which is in the 3 dots template menu.  How can I combine these two Create functions into one - as it was in 5.4.3?

I was able to hide the create button, so the template create button is the only available choice, by pasting this into Confluence Admin>Stylesheet:


    #quick-create-page-button {
  display:none !important;
