Can you make the default for Document libraries to Template "None". The current default is the old out-dated Document .dot template. Our process is to create New > App > Document Library > Advanced Options, then change the template to Document "None" to get rid it. Otherwise, the +New menu on the command bar ONLY shows a content type once we've applied our company Content Type. We lose all of the Office options AND in the past our Mac users encountered errors. If the default was Template None, the we could easily press New > Document library and bypass 4 extra clicks by having to go into the Advanced Options settings. AND save our business users from creating improperly configured libraries. This is critical to us moving forward with provisioning sites.
