I have pretty much the same comments. The former location of that button made much more sense to me but given my usual participation to big Flaming design discussions I can't really complain too much ;)

I`m not sure if we already have a discussion started on this topic, but in my opinion, it's long overdue. I see people start being confused and questions like this  start to be asked.
The new location of the Add menu in Flamingo is problematic IMO for a various number of reasons: - It falsely gives the impression that it adds page-related entries (i.e. related to the current page), due to its current location (i.e. in the page content)
I'm not sure that's a problem. The default behavior of the "create page" button is to create a page that is a child of the current page. Therefore, it can be considered a "current page-related" action.
- It conflicts with AWM`s "Add new Entry" button
Indeed, this would need to be improved.
- from my POV, looking at the page from a far, the new location looks completely randomly selected: -- It's not on the left/top (as left-to-right language specific brains are trained to follow) -- it's not exactly at the top either -- it's not at the right
-- it basically is almost in the middle of the screen
- etc. (i.e. others that don`t come right now to my mind)
I don't have a strong feeling about this. The only comparison I can think of right off the bat is Confluence, which has the same button in a similar location. It doesn't seem to be causing issues to their users.
I would see sense in adding "comment" as an option next to "page" and "page from office".
-- it's not next to the type of elements it creates (i.e. next to
As stated previously, I think having the same "Create" button for 3 actions that are fundamentally different is the larger issue here. I suggested a solution in the aforementioned email thread (separating the "create space" and "create wiki" buttons).
I`d like to open a discussion on this, since it's quite an important aspect
of the UI and, due to it's shiny green color (which I like :)), it`s hard to miss.
Is it just me who's resistant to change, or do others see a problem here with this as well?
