Is there a way to configure the + button to only add issues, and not projects? (Cloud)

In the new Jira Cloud UI, the [+] button is now present, instead of a [CREATE]. However, this has a sub-select, asking if I want an issue or a project. I think I create 100 issues to 1 project.  Is there any way to have this directly create an issue, now that the CREATE button is gone?

Hi Dane,

I am on JIRA Cloud, but for some reason I am not seeing the same screen than yours. It looks like you customized the look.

haha, I wish I did, then I could customize it back! I have no idea why it's there :)

Isn't the red frame with the name at the top your company's logo?

It is. But would adding a logo change the functionality of the [+] button?

No Dane it shouldn't at all!

I am surprised because I have personal Cloud account, my layout is completely different.

Looking at your screenshot I think that's how Atlassian wants it, to either create a Project or an issue.

It went away after a while...? Maybe I created enough projects to make it go away :-D

Glad to hear that or may be it is no longer there after the new upgrade :)
