No Create dialog appears when clicking create in navigation

Hi there

We are missing the "Create" dialog in our confluence instance. The "create" link is shown in the top navigation, but it always (and only) leads to "create page".

We already checked:

- the user has sufficient permission (is admin)
- entered safe mode -> no change
- blueprints are enabled and also promoted

Does someone have a hint on how to solve this issue? It basically renders confluence useless...


Thank you and best regards

Oh wait, now that I dig into the HTML I see... That the three dots are there but they are white (as our header background is). So no dots visible but there... Very hard to find them if you don't know where to look exactly.

Seems like bad styling there. The three dots are always white no matter what color you define in the color schema. There seems to be no way to actually set the color of the dots at all.

Do you have a button with 3 dots ... next to create button ?

What do you expect to see on the Create link?  If you just click "Create", it will always create a new page.  If you want to create from a template, you have to click the ellipsis ("...") next to the Create button...
