Generic New Issue page
One-off issue creation is cumbersome when juggling many projects. The current process for adding a single issue is:
- Go to the projects page (keyboard shortcut to bookmark)
- Click the link for the correct project (sometimes requires searching on the page)
- Click New Issue
- CREATE ISSUE
This is fine, and in fact preferable, when creating a series of tasks or tickets on one project. However, this is a lot of clicks for a creating single issue.
Would it be possible to provide a generic New Issue page at https://redmine.host/issues/new where the user selects a project from a drop-down menu? This may seem quite close to the current process of going through the projects page, but it has the following advantages:
- Can bookmark the New Issue page directly (-2 clicks).
- Can use keyboard in the "Project" entry field to quickly select the appropriate project (slight improvement over searching the projects page)
Alternately, is there a mod that could add the Project field to all New Issue pages? This would be just as well so long as the user's current project is always selected by default.
Will link to a related and, IMHO, far more interesting feature request that would obviate the need for such a page.

I created a template issue and then bookmarked the copy issue page at https://REDMINE_HOST/projects/PROJECT/issues/ISSUE_ID/copy. This provides a generic new issue page.

a generic "New Issue" page at https://redmine.host/issues/new has been already implemented. But the link to it has not been created anywhere. It could be added in the top menu or on the Projects page, next to "View all issues".
The only issue with current solution is that when navigated to https://redmine.host/issues/new the issue Project is defaulted to
@issue.project ||= @issue.allowed_target_projects.first
This is not ideal, as we really need user to choose right project.
