      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Story:
      As a user, I would like to see a list of 'promoted' space templates along with the 'blank page' template, since sometimes I do need to create a new page and hiding the 'blank page' option is misleading.

      Notes:
      The ability to hide the 'blank page' template is very useful when trying to push users to use other templates, but for some of our spaces creating pages from scratch occurs side-by-side with templates. Having the 'blank page' template live beneath the fold for these spaces is, at the very least, an annoyance.

      Workaround:
      Create a template in the space which nothing in it with a suitable name, e.g. "Blank Template", and promote that one. It should show up with the other promoted templates, and users can now create a blank page.
      ( On large sites with many spaces it will be cumbersome. But for single spaces and smaller sites it should do the trick until this improvement is implemented. )
