@Pavel48n0sh out-of-the-box this isn't possible as far as I know: SharePoint won't know what type of document you are creating or what it's name is.

Hi @Pavel48n0sh,

if you want to open the files in the client applications of Office, then you can use the Office URI Scheme 

This link for example will open word, select a template from the given url and will prompt the user to save it in the given document folder


But you cannot use that in a default modern UI button, since that only accepts "http://","https://" and "mailto:" protocols.

Best Regards,
